RESOURCE: Homeschool Conventions offer info for all learners

Before I withdrew my daughter w/ autism from public school, we supplemented a lot at home. I had no idea that I was missing out on an entire world of wonderful resources that we could have been using at home. Homeschool convention web sites offer a wealth of information, whether you plan to attend the convention or not. I wrote about it last year here.

I have been browsing the speaker line-up at one of the "biggies" in homeschool conventions, and found a long list of speakers aimed at families with a child with a special learning need.

Take a look:

If you are not able to attend or don't want to attend, but would like to hear one of the presentations, you may be able to purchase that presentation after the conference. Last year, a company out of Kentucky called Rhino Technologies recorded almost every session and sold audio-CDs to those who wanted them.
