Who We Are


Homeschool Hotlinks is a resource created by parents for parents. Come here to find inspirational stories, support, engaging teaching ideas, and teaching tips to help make homeschooling the perfect fit for your family. 


The Homeschool Hotlinks community helps homeschooling parents learn teaching strategies to help their children, especially gifted and struggling learners, so they can enjoy homeschooling. 


Homeschool Hotlinks is led by Dr. Crystal Ladwig, a veteran special education teacher, professor, and researcher turned homeschool mom. Crystal specializes in working with children with learning disabilities, autism, and mental health issues as well as children considered 2e (gifted + a disability). 


Crystal is a wife, mom, and teacher with over 20 years of experience. She is a published author and veteran speaker at state, national, and international conferences.
