We are excited to offer a special webinar Monday, August 9, 2021 at 7:30 p.m. EST on homeschooling and PWS.
The COVID-19 pandemic forced parents to make difficult decisions regarding their children’s education. Join Julie Casey and Danielle Warmuth to learn from veteran homeschoolers about curriculums, services, and socialization.
Julie Casey has been homeschooling her 17-year-old son Ryan (PWS) for the last 11 years. This September, she will begin her 12th year with Ryan as a High School Senior. Before becoming a stay-at-home mom, Julie, who holds a BA in Behavioral Sciences and a MA in Organizational Management, worked in the Insurance and Risk Management Industry. Shortly after Ryan was born in 2004, Julie got involved with both PWSA | USA and PWCF. She is a past Board President for PWCF and remains on their Fund Development Committee. Julie is a member of the PWSA | USA Communications and Editorial Committee, the Chapter Relations Committee, and is a Parent Mentor.
Danielle Warmuth has been homeschooling for 21 years and has three children, ages 30, 27, and Andrew, age 14 (PWS). She served as Secretary for the Prader-Willi syndrome, Indiana Chapter for 10 years. She is a multidisciplinary major in International Studies from Michigan State University, holds minors in Earth Sciences, Archaeology, and Anthropology, and speaks French and Japanese. Danielle retired from the airlines in 2012 to stay home with Andrew. Together, they co-author the website Moving Mountains Daily. It was a homeschool project that grew way beyond what they intended! Outside the classroom, exercise and life adventures are a big part of their school day. Experiences like hospital stays, learning to pump gas, scouting, living with the nomads in Mongolia, or watching a flatboat navigate the Ohio River locks all count as “school.” Their family life motto is “Progress not Perfection.”
