Thinking about home education? Concerned about writing your exemption or just new to home education? Currently Home Educating and want to stay informed?

The Exemption Process – The Ministry’s Perspective
a forum presented by the Ministry of Education
in association with Auckland Home Educators Inc

We are pleased and fortunate to have additional speakers for this MoE Forum: Mary deBeer, and Sandra Frakes.
Both are experienced Educational Psychologists who will be discussing some features of Dyslexia as well as some practical strategies both in support of the student and supportive teaching strategies for students with Dyslexia. They also have copies of a comprehensive teacher resource that parents can take with them. There will also be time for your questions and concerns.

Cost: AHE Members – free / Non-AHE Members – $3 per person (please bring correct cash)

This Forum aims to clarify the process involved.
Be guided through the application document by the staff who handle them.
Gain knowledge to write yours with confidence or help others to prepare theirs.
Primary, secondary and special needs considerations will be covered along with various approaches right through from ACE to unschooling.

Registrations close at midnight Thursday 21 March.

Please register only if you can commit to being there. Government building security means an attendance list must be supplied in advance. Avoid the embarrassment and disappointment of being denied entry if you are not on that list! Building doors will be unmanned after 7.10 pm so entry will be unavailable after that – no exceptions!
To register, email govtliaison@ahe.org.nz (please note the two ‘i’s in liaison) with “AHE MoE Forum” in the Subject Header
