My name is Heather Laurie. My husband, Christopher and I have been married for 13 wonderful years. We have been blessed with 7 children, two of whom are awaiting us in Heaven.

We began our homeschooling journey eight years ago. Since that day we have found out that our children have a genetic disorder. It causes a large variety of medical and learning problems. As the years passed it was obvious that I too had serious health issues. I have lupus.

This has brought our homeschooling journey to many unexpected places. We have homeschooled in the 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.

Heather will be speaking on:

Movers, shakers and denim cloth haters: sensory kids
Does your child bounce constantly? Will your child refuse to touch sand? We discuss Sensory Integration Disorder and what it means to our homeschooling. Practical advice and ideas from a mom who has lived the sensory roller coaster for years, and if pushed would have to admit to having sensory issues herself. How to adapt your learning environment to help your child thrive!
