DID YOU KNOW? A few years ago, homeschool students made up roughly 3 percent of the student population. But as of fall 2020, 11.1 percent of school-age households nationwide reported homeschooling their children, according to a recent U.S. Census Bureau report. The homeschooling rate doubled in many states and tripled or quadrupled in others.

Families from all over the St. Louis region and nearby Illinois counties are members of SHARE, although we are based in the South City, South County and Mid County areas.

The majority of members are Christians and leadership is totally Christian; however, people of all faiths are welcome in S.H.A.R.E. We are united by our choice to homeschool our children and give them the best possible educational experience AND by our desire to protect homeschooling rights in Missouri and elsewhere.

Our main goal is to inform, equip and encourage families in their homeschooling journey!

S.H.A.R.E. offers many activities and classes to supplement and enrich your home education experience, including an E-NEWSLETTER that is filled with both upcoming SHARE activities and other opportunities that your homeschoolers may benefit from. Be the first to find out about such events as:

Bloom and Grow Speech Therapy

Do you have concerns about your child’s speech or language?

Does your child struggle with academics, vocabulary, following directions, or reading?

Detecting a speech or language problem can be tricky if you don’t know the traits of typical development. The simple rule of thumb is a language problem may exist if a child doesn’t understand and/or express what they want to say as well as other children of the same age. Research shows that the earlier problems are detected and treated, the better children progress and keep pace with peers in learning and social relationships.

Stacy Bick, former homeschooling mom and Speech Therapist at BLOOM AND GROW SPEECH THERAPY (formerly Victory Speech Therapy and Autism), now has openings to help your child with any concerns you may have from articulation, vocabulary, language, listening skills, auditory processing, stuttering, to vocal quality. She is offering a free 15 minute screening. And if therapy is needed, she offers a 50% discount to homeschooling families. Virtual Therapy is also available, if desired!

Contact her at [email protected] or call 314-635-5400.
