    Default Just left Facebook

    I haven't done a forum in a long time. Recently left Facebook and am looking for a place to be. We are CM and we still retain some of our unschooling roots. We are special needs with trauma spectrum, dyslexia, and autism. I don't see any recent posting under special needs?? Thanks for having me here!

    Is there something specific you were interested in about SN homeschooling? The search feature is sometimes a little cumbersome and hard to navigate, but we could probably find relevant threads for you, or give you our opinions.

    My spelling was fine, then my brain left me.

    There are some specific groups here; perhaps a little quiet though.
    My daughter is on the autism spectrum (Aspie, I believe) somewhere.
    I left FB a year ago; my bullshit meter was pegged out.

    Welcome. I am sure if you post, people will reply. Many of us are homeschooling because our kids are quirky in some way. My DD is not classed as special needs in school but she is gifted with a low processing speed, anxiety, and many ASD-like behaviors at the milder end of the spectrum (but it is really hard to find anyone with enough experience with girls with giftedness + potential ASD to determine if she actually does).

    Glad to hear of more joining the non-Facebook ranks. I can't recall the exact year I deleted my Facebook account but it was over 10 years ago and I have not missed it at all. I even managed to get my DH on the bandwagon and he left it over a year ago. It is occasionally annoying when things are only on Facebook (like some of my daughter's dance school stuff) but overall a positive. I just could not stand how high school social grandstanding it was and such a waste of time.

    I'm new here too! And I left Facebook about... 7 years ago, I think. I thought I'd take a break and go back when I missed it too much, and I just never did.

    The forums aren't quite hopping here, but people are very helpful and respond quickly when someone posts. I'm grateful!
