We will also have it available during the rest of CHEA’s Parenting & Homeschool Conference for talks given by our Keynote speakers, Ginger Hubbard and Heidi St. John. We will have times in our Homeschool Help Booth when you can get your questions answered in Spanish one-on-one with veteran homeschool parents as well. Please join us for this amazing event!


We are pleased to offer ASL translation services for our Keynote sessions on Friday morning, Saturday morning, and Saturday evening. Please contact our office at [email protected] for additional information or with any questions.
