My name is Heather Laurie. My husband, Christopher and I have been married for 15 wonderful
years. We have been blessed with 5 children, and 3 angels awaiting us in Heaven.

hospital, many a doctor’s office, and therapy parking lots. Four of the kids are on the autism spectrum
and have varying levels of sensory issues. The wide variety of problems the children have dealt with or
are dealing with has left me uniquely positioned to cover first hand a large variety of problems.
I began my blog to reach out and help other families homeschooling with special needs.
My blog, Special Needs Homeschooling has grown since then bigger than I ever imagined.
My blog now has a Facebook page and group that are highly active. I have written several articles for
The Old Schoolhouse, Crosswalk.com, several ezines and several group blogs.
Special Needs Homeschooling is also listed as a resource with Home School Legal Defense
Agency and Autism Speaks!
The Lord is guiding us through our trials as He has every other storm we have faced. If I can pass on one
lesson it is to listen to God. He is the goal at the end of the homeschooling journey.
My husband and I have been praying for years that our trials could be put to the Lord’s glory.
If we stand together encouraging and supporting one another we are stronger! You can homeschool your
child no matter the limitation or special need they have! You can do it!
Heather Laurie has spoken at conventions both in person and online, home groups, MOPS groups, and
retreats. Those who read through her blog, Special Needs Homeschooling, will find that the Lord has
given Heather many unique experiences. She has spoken about her pregnancy loss, her family’s dietary
restrictions, special needs homeschooling, and more general how-to homeschool topics.
Heather says the Lord has lit a fire in her heart to help and encourage the special needs community!
