On Friday I gathered some of my friends and started a group specifically geared towards homeschooling children with Down syndrome. There are great resources for general special needs groups, as I have mentioned before, but sometimes it is nice to have a Down syndrome specific discussion. While there were a few groups with that name they either weren't as active or limited discussion topics. So I started a group:
This group will be open to any homeschooling mom who has a child with Down syndrome. You can feel free to discuss anything related to homeschooling, Down syndrome, parenting, or just life. You can ask questions, share advice and resources, tell us of your great successes, cry on a rough day or whatever else you feel led to do. All we ask is that you respect your fellow group mates and don't try to market items unrelated to the topic. I want to know all about the latest sale on curriculum or educational toys but this is not the place to sell jewelry or clothes, etc.
I would love for my readers to join in on the discussion. If you have a child with Down syndrome and are homeschooling, or considering homeschooling, this is a great place to converse with others who are doing the same! Come share a bit of your life and we will share a little of ours. We can learn a lot from each other so please consider joining us!
