Joining my Special Needs Membership Group will help you homeschool your special needs child from a developmental perspective instead of a grade perspective.

It will help you evaluate where your child is and what the next step is; not where he “should be.”

I will help you consider the needs of your child, and the needs of your family, as well as consider your needs as the teacher and parent.

I know you desperately want to give your child an education perfectly fitted to his needs, but sometimes you just don’t know where to start, or how to help him take the next step, and are afraid you might leave out a crucial component.

I can help.

Amy is a breath of fresh air! She understands the public education system, yet with her background in neuropsychology is able to truly understand the child. Because of her background in public education, she understands the pain of trying to utilize the public education system to help your child.

She confirmed everything I had researched about the brain and learning and gave me more information I was not aware of. She was the first professional that TRULY understood my child, my situation and how to help us PRACTICALLY.

I wish I could give her 100 stars!

– Danielle, Special Needs Homeschooling Mom


I have been consulting privately with Special Needs families for more than 15 years.

I bring my experience as a School Psychologist, Autistic individual, and parent of two Autistic kids to the homeschool community in hopes of helping more families find joy in their educational journey.

Professionally, personally, and as a parent, I have a significant amount of experience with Autism and all the many processing and learning disabilities that can go with Autism.

All of these different angles of experience give me a very unique perspective and insight into homeschooling students with varying needs.

My credentials include the following:

  • Educational Specialist Degree (Ed.S.) in Educational Psychology with an emphasis in Neuropsychology
  • Master’s in Educational Psychology
  • Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology
  • Minor in Mathematics
  • Autistic adult
  • Homeschooling mom to two Autistic kiddos

Unschooling, Eclectic, Charlotte Mason, etc? I can help you no matter what method you follow. I have worked with families from all backgrounds.

I have personally chosen the Charlotte Mason philosophy to homeschool my own children because it is the way I wish I, as an Autistic child, had been educated.

Recognizing early on that my children were also Autistic, I knew a Charlotte Mason education would be a perfect fit for many different reasons.

But the primary reason is that Charlotte Mason advocated that “Children are born persons.”

Too often children with different needs are viewed as “less than” because of those differences. The Charlotte Mason philosophy puts respect for their personhood at the foundation of their education. 

Professionally, personally, and as a parent, I have a significant amount of experience with Autism and all the many processing and learning disabilities that can go with Autism.

All of these different angles of experience give me a very unique perspective and insight into homeschooling students with varying needs.

Our Special Needs Membership will respect your child’s personhood, abilities, and will see your child as a whole person

    This group has more fun than any other homeschool group on the internet! I love being able to connect to other special needs families, who understand our family’s struggles and share our triumphs. If you are on the fence about joining – give it a shot! You won’t regret it!
