If you or one of your children has a diagnosis that effects homeschooling (ASD, ADHD, depression, anxiety, physical disability, etc..) then you may want to join the Homeschooling with Special Needs in the Lansing Area group for support. They don’t do in person events but they are a great bunch of people to talk to online, and you may find someone you want to meet up with in person.
