About Different By Design Learning

Different By Design Learning was born out of one mom’s own experience and need. 

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!

Different By Design Learning helps you homeschool children with unique differences, through interest-led, strength-based learning.
