Different by Design with Shawna Wingert {Episode 64}

Shawna Wingert joins the sisters in this episode to talk about when your homeschool doesn’t look like the one next door, and why just because it’s different, doesn’t mean it’s less.

Shawna is a special education teacher turned business consultant, and mom of two brilliant boys with differences and special needs. She’s just launched a new venture – Different by Design Learning – which creates customized, strength-based learning plans for nontraditional learners.

Shawna has a new venture and we are so excited about it! Different By Design Learning offers customized, strength-based learning plans for nontraditional learners. Completely based on your child’s interests, you have the option of using a custom workbook template that walks you through making your own plan, or you can work directly with Shawna and she will create it for you. You answer some questions about your child and she does all the work for you. This perfect for the mom of a differently wired kiddo that just needs a little help getting started with a strength-based approach.

Foreign Language in Your Homeschool, with Anne Guarnera {Episode 62}

Sisters – so many of you have asked for this one, and Cait + Kara are thrilled to finally be able to share it with you.

In this episode, Anne Guarnera of Language Learning at Home is addressing all your foreign language learning questions – from whether we need to start when our kids are tiny, to whether computer-based programs are a viable option.

Anne is a whiz – not only does she have a PhD in Spanish, she’s also homeschooling her boys bilingually.

You’re going to love hearing what she has to say. And the sisters want Anne to come back, so make sure you add YOUR questions in the comments so that they can ask Anne in a future episode!
