The Special Services Program is a supplement to our Teacher Review Program designed to help families who have children with learning challenges. Enrolling your child in the Special Service Program provides:
Mother of Divine Grace School's consultants are homeschooling mothers who have broad experience working with children with many different special needs. They have received extensive training in our methodology and the adaption of our curriculum and goals for the purpose of helping the struggling student achieve his goals. Special service consultants are also available to assist families as well as consultants when designing a curriculum. We have broad experience working with many learning challenges, behavioral issues, and emotional issues.
Special Services: Grades Pre-K–5: No Charge / Grades 6–12: $35
Signing up in the Basic Level will provide additional added resources and job aids for your student. It also provides access to additional levels of support:
Special Services Planning Consultation (available April through August): $150
Mom meets with the consultant and the Special Service consultant in a consultation in order to develop a complete educational plan for the student. The Special Service consultant will provide a detailed report for the student for the year.
Special Services Additional Consultation: $100
This plan is perfect for the mom who does not need an entirely specialized educational plan for her child but instead needs to modify the current plan. The Special Service consultant will meet with the family consultant to look over the existing educational plan, make recommendations for modifications, as well as provide additional resources. These will be discussed with the parents in a consultation dedicated to the SS student. There is no written report at this level.
For more information on the additional levels of service, please contact your consultant. She can help determine the best course of action for your child.
High School graduation is possible for our students with learning challenges. To graduate from MODG, the student must complete high school requirements for graduation. Your consultant can help you with this. If your child is unable to complete high school requirements, he can earn a Certificate of Completion. There is also the California High School Proficiency Exam (www.chspe.net). Talk to your consultant for more information.

I was drawn to MODG almost immediately. I read DYOCC way back when my oldest was in K and it just made sense. I loved the order and the beauty of the curriculum. I loved the seamless addition of poetry and fine arts in tiny kid-sized chunks, and I loved not having to come up with it all on my own. I can truly say that being enrolled has saved my life. I don’t know if I would have been able to continue homeschooling without the support of my consultant and the various TA and LS classes (especially during high school.) But most of all it has helped me remain confident and at peace with my decision to home school. Even when things are falling apart around me, I can pull back to the basics of the syllabus and know that my kids are getting a great education. It’s easy to homeschool when you have time to add in fun adventures and unit studies tailored to the kids interests. But some years you have a baby, or move, or a loved one dies or is sick and needs care. Sometimes getting through the day is a matter of taking up your cross and struggling to stay joyful. In times like these it’s an achievement to get anything done, one math lesson, one paper, one book read. If I didn’t have my consultant and the rock solid foundation of MODG I would despair and say it was too much. So, yes, being enrolled has helped. I know this isn’t everyone’s path. But I don’t regret a second of my time being enrolled with such a wonderful school.”
