Homeschool 
Groups for Neurodiverse Learners

 

Since the pandemic, the number of homeschooling families with neurodivergent learners (including ASD and IDD) in Colorado has soared. Many families opt for homeschooling due to the need for individualized instruction and specialized support, despite limited professional resources for support. In response to this need, Hopkins has created inclusive and high-quality programming for homeschooling families of neurodivergent learners. We now offer social skills groups, functional skills groups, and parent support groups to provide comprehensive support and address the unique needs of this population.
