GiftsNVA is a free group for those homeschooling children with physical, developmental, medical, communication, or learning challenges. Parents meet 4th Mondays, usually at 7:00pm at Reston Bible church in Sterling, for encouragement and support. Each meeting features either a speaker or a discussion topic. In June and September, they gather for a family picnic. Though the group meets in a church and opens in prayer, they welcome anyone who is, has, or is considering homeschooling a special needs child. GiftsNVA also has a private yahoo group to discuss curriculum, therapy, and doctors, and to encourage each other in the day-to-day challenges and to communicate group activities.
When you contact GiftsNVA, specify if you want information about the yahoo group or the physical meetings.
