Hi, I’m Shawna!
Parent coach specializing In Children with differences.
author. Speaker. homeschool mom.
Shawna Wingert is a former training and development professional, turned author and homeschool mom. She has homeschooled her own two unique learners for more than a decade, has written four books about homeschooling children with learning differences, and is passionate about strength-based learning.
Homeschooling and parenting children with learning differences, behavioral challenges and special needs is incredibly challenging. It’s also, in my experience, so very worth it and a lot easier to do when you feel support and encouragement!
