Just curious. If we register as independent homeschoolers (Tennessee) through the local school district would we have access to intervention services like speech therapy?

 

What about if we used K12.com?

Completely depends on your state laws. I would think odds would improve with K12 since I believe that legally makes your child a public school student. When we lived in Oregon we would have had access as regular home schoolers, here it sounds like it's iffy.

 

One thing to consider. Services through many districts are wholly inadequate due to lack of funds. So for example, we are looking at needing weekly speech therapy for DS but a school district would likely only be able to provide him one session a month. Of course what the school district can offer may be adequate for many kids so it just depends on your situation.

Thanks! It's really the last thing holding me back from wholly committing to hs. I know he needs speech therapy but don't know if we can swing it. k12 wasn't my first choice but I'd be willing to use it for the time being if it meant getting services and staying at home.
