 Dear NATHHAN: I don't know how you define a special needs support group but we have lots of special needs kids in ours. We have all kinds of physical and other disabilities and we welcome anyone who wants to join us. However, we are not exclusively for families with handicapped or "special needs" kids. We have about 400 families on our mailing list. The newsletter costs $30.00 a year but our park day is every Monday and open to anyone. You do not need to be a member. We have lots and lots of activities and field trips (about 2 a week). People can sign up for activities at the park if they wish or by mail if they get the newsletter. We also operate a "school" for homeschoolers (that's how we stay legal in CA) and a bookstore. Since one of our daughters was what the world calls "learning disabled" (personally I abhor the term), we are very careful to carry manipulatives, audiotapes, etc. which can help the "learning different" child. I have a current CA teaching credential for K through 9 and Junior College. I homeschooled my own children for 14 years. If you subscribe to THE LINK, you can read about my daughter in my article 2 issues ago titled, Homeschooling the Late Bloomer. We would welcome any special needs families who want to join us in whatever capacity.

Also, I am sending in a renewal for the Nathhan News for our resource center. Sincerely, Carolyn Forte, Excellence In Education (also known as EIE) Phone (626) 821-0025 website:

We have a park day every Monday except holidays at Arcadia County Park in Arcadia, CA at noon. We also have Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. We are Christians but our group is not exclusive.
