This post is part of a series titled, “Homeschool Q&A.” The series features questions we’ve received from parents on a variety of topicsand the answers!

Q. Is my homeschooler eligible for speech therapy through a public school?

A. Although school districts are not obligated to provide special-needs services for homeschooled children, some districts may offer services to homeschool students on a first-come, first-served basis if funds are available. Speech therapy is the most often provided service, but you would need to contact your local school district to see what is available.
