cuando using subjuntive

there is a sentence in the notes where it says 

'Hablo con ella cuando llega a casa. = I will speak with her when she gets home.'

Since this is a non general statement of using cuando, but a future specified situation, shouldn't we use subjuntive? there is a note on this. are is this the same thing but different point of view?

Hablo con ella cuando llegue a casa.

Hola Ashlyn

There was a typo there. That is expressing a specific situation (that does take place) so the translation should have said:

I speak with her when I arrive home. (= everytime I arrive home I do speak with her)

That's been corrected. 

Gracias y saludos

I would classify this as a habitual action.  Would that be correct?

Yes, that'd be correct, Marcos, habitual actions.
