I have several friends that homeschool but they are all involved in "their own thing" and while I've heard of groups in the area, I am at a loss as to how to find/contact them. I emailed the NCHE today so hopefully I will have other leads.
Really in need of a supportive group, preferably one that is familiar with special needs (my son has SPD) and is secular. My son comes from a background of a Waldorf-inspired preschool (past two years) but this year is not in preschool. Instead, he is taking swimming lessons, tae kwon do, and scouting on the side. I have the Handwriting without Tears curriculum but am meeting with some resistance since he has low muscle tone and has been holding pencils incorrectly since toddlerhood.
Would like to meet regularly, unschooling is fine but we do a lot of it already, it would be nice to have a somewhat structured activity at least one morning a week.
All suggestions, guidance would be appreciated!
Good luck, I'm sure you'll get some good suggestions from folks in Raleigh.

If you are a conservative Christian, there's a loop based in Raleigh for you called spiceline....
the Cary Homeschoolers has a big active inclusive group, so if you're on that end of Raleigh it might work: http://www.caryhomeschoolers.org/
I also met someone the same day you posted about Homeschool Explorers so I am going to attend their next meeting next Tuesday.
Off to check out the website for GiftsNC to find out where/when they meet.
Unfortunately, I live 45+ minutes from Cary so the Cary Homeschoolers are not an option.
