Parent Support Groups for Special Education or Homeschooling Special Needs Children

This is an annotated list of parent support groups and listservs for special education. Read descriptions and join the special education or special needs homeschooling support group that best meets your needs.

Special education parent support groups and discussion listservs are excellent resources for parents of children with special needs or disabilities. In addition to these specific special education support groups, you may also wish to review related disability topic groups (such as learning disabilities) in our Directory of Children's Disability Support Groups.

Reed Martin Sped Law (Special Education Law)
