Homeschoolers of Deaf or Hard of Hearing Children

Are you thinking about or attempting to homeschool your child who is deaf or hard-of-hearing? You are not alone, and there are many resources on the internet that you can use to help you and your child in your efforts.

In particular, there is a support group and information clearinghouse for parents who are homeschooling deaf or hard-of-hearing children on Yahoo! groups. Although discussion of general homeschool issues is permitted, the group's focus is really on the particular challenges of homeschooling deaf and hard-of-hearing children.

Some topics that have been discussed include: IEP's, legal issues, how to obtain special ed services, and exploration of alternative educational approaches, presentation, and learning styles. All homeschool approaches are supported and discussed, from "school-at-home" to "unschooling."

If your child is deaf or hard-of-hearing, it's a good idea to join this group, talk with other who are facing the same challenge, and get advice.

The group's web address is:
