    Default Anyone in South Jersey area?

    Hi, I am new here. I am seriously considering homeschooling for my daughter, 13 y/o with Down syndrome. I am interested in whether there are others here in the South Jersey area and if so, what kind of activities they participate in as part of a group, outside of the home. Thanks!

    Hi Kathi. I am also Kathi. Unfortunately we live on the other end of the state in Bergen County. If you check out this link there are some groups in South Jersey. New Jersey Homeschool Hangout covers the whole state but most of the activities are in the Northern part. My son is almost 10 years old. We are involved in so many activities we barely have any time at home. Tomorrow we are going strawberry picking at Alstede's Farm in Chester. Thursday we have a class at Historic Speedwell. Friday we go to the Montclair Art Museum. So you can see we are all over the place. We have many special needs kids in our homeschool group. I'm sure you'll find a great group near you.

    What you are describing is exactly what I am hoping to find in my area too for next school year -- some outside enrichment activities for my daughter to participate in with a consistent group of friends. I will check out the link you posted, thanks!

    Hello, I am also new to my area. We are currently homeschooling our 12 year old son with Down Syndrome. We live near Atlantic City. Did you decide to homeschool your daughter? Where do you live in South Jersey? Hope to hear from you. Janice
