Homeschooling Special Needs students can be the most rewarding task you will ever attempt.  However, there are plenty of questions, struggles and frustrations along the way.  Perhaps you have friends or relatives who are convinced you are not qualified to the task, or you have other children to teach along with your daily cooking, cleaning, laundry, and much more.

If you need ideas about curricula, accommodation strategies, testing, or just a shoulder to lean on, give us a chance to serve you and your special needs student.  Having a counselor with her own diagnosed child will allow you to feel comfortable speaking about your journey.  It will make your day a little brighter and you will be encouraged to go on with what God has asked you to do.  Read along in the BLOG area to see what situations have arisen in this household over the years as we traveled the road you are now traveling.

We are located in the state of South Carolina where we have 3 options for homeschooling.  Susan is currently helping families enrolled in all 3 options.  There are also families who live out of state and even abroad who are accessing help and guidance from our services.  Feel free to look through this site to find out how we can assist you in this journey.  There are TESTIMONIALS,  TESTING opportunities, and MORE.  We look forward to hearing from you!  You are NOT alone, we are here to help!!



It has been a pleasure to work with Mrs. Blackwell for the last 10 years. She has assisted our family providing consulting services in curriculum, teaching methods and testing for my special needs son. She has a deep knowledge in Special Education and has a wonderful way of connecting with students to help them feel at ease. My son enjoys seeing her and looks forward to testing dates. Mrs. Blackwell’s professional service has been the greatest asset in successfully helping my homeschooling son reach his senior year. I highly recommend her services to any Special Needs family.

Approximately five to six years ago, I started on the home schooling journey with my son James. Thank God that we had the pleasure of crossing paths with Mrs. Susan Blackwell. She is not only great at “Special Needs” coordination, it is one of her God given talents. She puts her whole heart and soul into everything that she helps us with and I know that she does the same for all families. It is not just a job for her. She unselfishly gives of her time and professional expertise/talent to help all families and is an expert in her field. Miss Susan, as my son affectionately calls her, has been and still is a blessing to our family. We have laughed together, cried together, and she has been able to walk us through “Special Needs” homeschooling, meeting goals by following her gentle suggestions. It is and has been an exciting journey and we are appreciative that she helped us to seek the best outcome along the way.

Susan Blackwell’s dedication to her clients is beyond comparison. Her work is current, relevant, and compassionate. Susan deals with each client within their particular needs and abilities. Unlike so many professionals, Susan is easily accessible and responds to questions in a timely manner. I would not hesitate to refer anyone to Susan for the highest standard of assistance for your special needs student.
