HSP 27 Marianne Sunderland: Meeting Their Needs

Marianne Sunderland is a long-time homeschooler who has graduated 3 (soon to be 4) of her 8 children. She joins us on this episode of the podcast to discuss just the tip of the iceberg of what she has learned in over 20 years of homeschooling, about dyslexia, helping kids set goals and pursue big dreams, and more.

Her family’s journey is an exciting one and listening to Marianne share her wisdom and personal experiences is a treat. Enjoy!

    I loved this one and hope you’ll do a part 2 re: dyslexia. My son (who I’ve always had it in the back of my mind, *could* be dyslexic) has now started receiving help from our enrolled school (we’re still homeschoolers, long story) for dyslexia because as he’s in third grade, he has never improved in spelling or handwriting, though he reads a few years above his grade level! He *hates* the Susan Barton method we’re working through. Like, tears and tantrums hating it. I’d love to hear another podcast with more tips, curriculum, etc. ….just….more! I am just now entering the waters of research and so your site will be a boon!

      Do check out Marianne’s site for a ton of resources about dyslexia. There is so much there.


  • Though it’s sslim that you’re going to expertise a
    disaster, you’ll be able to presumably prepare a testing of the service to see how effectively they
    come through foor you.

    Pam, just want to say thank you so much for all you do! Love your podcast and look forward to it – love the background music, the guests, the topics, the whole feel of it and of course your insight. It makes me look forward to washing dishes (so I can listen while I work :)). Keep it up!

  • Cathy says:

    This podcast was an eye opener for me. I’m looking into dyslexia as a possibility for one of my boys. Thank you. Also, Pam at the beginning of the podcast you mentioned a guide for 5 things to get ready for the homeschool morning. I am unable to find the link for the guide. Can you help me find it? Thank you!
