If a man does not keep pace with his companions,
perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer.
Let him step to the music which he hears,
however measured or faraway.
~ Henry David Thoreau

It is a given that parents who choose this list look to respect the individuality of their child(ren) with autism and his/her needs and interests as their prime motivator. We do not hold one homeschooling or autism ideology as better than another, but honor whatever works for the child and his/her family.
We gather together to share what works for us and our children, to share our experiences, to share community and state resources, to share questions and concerns, and to network and support each other for both homeschooling and autism.
All individuals, including professionals and other interested parties, are welcome to join the list who support homeschooling and autism and can add dimension to the discussion. However, precedence always goes to the parent when issues arise. Advertising of services or products is prohibited.
We look forward to the diversity of the group, the uniqueness of each family, and the individuality of the child to shine through as we share how we live, love and learn with our child(ren) with autism through homeschooling.

This is a members only list.
No school-district administration, teachers, faculty or their representatives are permitted to join, due to the sensitive nature of discussion here. Therefore, membership requires application.
While Families Hand in Hand is not an exclusively Christian list, it will be run and maintained from a Biblical perspective, welcoming to faith and trust in Jesus Christ and a Biblical view. We look forward to aiding one-another in training up our children.

- GifTEds - We are a UK-based mailing list for the families of twice exceptional children; these are gifted children who also have learning differences or special needs such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, AS, ADHD, TS, OCD, CAPD, and so on. We also welcome those who just don't fit into the old stereotypical model of the gifted child for whatever reason, and hope that all will feel supported as they work to help their children.
We welcome members worldwide, whether their children are at school or educated at home. There are special challenges in ensuring an appropriate education for our children. The idea that a child can be gifted and yet have a special need is a concept still in its infancy in the UK! The challenge can feel insurmountable to both child and parent.
We aim to be a safe, caring environment where all feel free to share their experiences and gain mutual support. Lacking face to face contact, we have to be extremely courteous, respectful and tolerant of all. Flaming will not be tolerated. Those who do not respect this will be banned from the list.
For reasons of privacy messages will not be archived. Nor do we ask for proof of giftedness, etc. This means the list will be 'open', so to maintain your children's privacy you may want to use their initials, or pseudonyms, and avoid mentioning identifying information such as schools or teachers. This list is not intended to be used for research. If a researcher does wish to access the list members, that request MUST be via the listowner, who will forward the request to the list if it is felt appropriate.
Please post an introduction of yourself to the list. We look forward to 'meeting' you!

- GT-Spec-Home - an email list for families homeschooling gifted/special needs children.
All gifted children are special because of their intellectual abilities. Some, however, have disabilities that make them 'twice-special.' Many of us have found that the best way of meeting the educational needs of our twice-exceptional children is through homeschooling. This discussion group is devoted to families who are homeschooling or considering homeschooling these children.
What does GT-Spec-Home address? Generally, we are talking about any gifted child who has a learning disability (LD) and/or other neurological problem(s) and who may be homeschooled. These other neurological problems may include but are not limited to ADD, hyperactivity, autism, Asperger's Syndrome, Tourette's Syndrome, PDD, ODD, OCD, anxiety disorders, sensory integration disorders (SI), and depression.
What these problems all have in common is that they:
- Are caused by problems in the brain and nervous system
- Are in some cases treatable, but are essentially incurable at this time
- Are widely misunderstood by schools and by the public
GT-Spec-Home is a safe place where we can discuss our twice-special children, and the special challenges we face in helping them (and others) understand and deal with their differences, while also encouraging them to develop and enjoy their exceptional intellectual abilities. It is a place to share homeschooling resources, ask for suggestions of how to meet our children's unique needs, and get support for ourselves as we navigate the adventure of homeschooling our special children.

- Homeschool_SpecialNeedsKidz (Homeschooling Special Needs Kidz) - THERE IS HOPE! This is a support group for those who live mainly in the USA who are homeschooling a "special needs" child, ages preschool to 19.
Whether your child has ADHD, a learning disability (LD), dyslexia, emotional or neurological disorder, bipolar,tourette syndrome,deafness,autism,anxiety disorder, oppositonal defiance disorder, blindness,any type of emotional or physical handicap,etc, then this group is for you.
We all have our own individual needs and problems, yet we all do share a common goal -- to educate our precious children the best way we can. Many Americans are pulling their children out of public schools in droves. Violence, gang activity, unsympathetic teachers, homework overload, drugs and alcohol abuse, and lack of values and morals are just a few of the reasons families are pulling their kids out and teaching them at home. There is no doubt the public school system, for the most part, is failing our kids. Especially our "special needs kids" who are often misunderstood and pushed by the wayside. Of course, there are small groups of schools/teachers who do very well with special needs kids, but they are in the minority. Many churches and synagogues have trouble ministering to special needs kids as well. It has taken much courage for you to take the responsibility of educating your children at home, and you are to be commended. Hang in there! Homeschooling a special needs kid has it's rewards. Grab a cup of coffee and sit down here for a bit, and share your life and experiences with others who are going through the same things. Here you will find encouragement, teaching ideas, info on doctors and meds,friendship,advice,and acceptance. This is a primarily Christian and Jewish group so arguments of any kind or harrassment will not be permitted. Let's keep the focus on what is best for the kids. NO SPAMMERS!
