School for Kids with Special Needs

Magnet School

Magnet schools have all the services of your local school with the ability to choose where your child goes to school. This is generally another free option. There will be students from around the school district. Your child will be able to choose a specialty if they want to, such as math, science or the arts. Magnet schools also offer support for disabled children. There may be a long waiting list to get your child in, as magnet schools often have limited enrollment. Transportation may also be a challenge, depending on where the magnet school is located.

Charter School

There are many charter schools that only take children with special needs. Charter schools are public, which means they are generally free. They provide many of the same services as a local school for children with special needs. The nice thing about charter schools is that they have smaller classes so your child will receive more personalized attention. Charter schools also generally have a mission statement of some sort that is clear and focused. You will know if the charter school is right for you by their mission statement and focus. There are some negatives to charter schools, such as they may not receive government funding, which prevents them from meeting the requirements for disabled children. They are also generally run by non-profits, private companies or community groups and may not be well run. They can also be shut down if the students do not meet the standards for learning.

Private School

Private school gives you the most control over your child with special needs environment. This is, however, the most expensive option on the list, but there are a lot of benefits to a private school. Class sizes are most often smaller than the local school, which means more personalized attention for your child. They also generally turn out better than average results academic wise. The downside is they are not required to take children with special needs, so you may be hunting down a school for a while. They also aren’t required to provide services for children with special needs either. Plus they often have a limited number of openings.


School For Learning And Attention Difficulties

This may be your best option, if there is one near you. Though if the school doesn’t pay for it, it can be quite expensive. Teachers at these schools have training on learning and attention difficulties, making them fully capable of teaching your child. Children in these schools may also be more accepting of other students, as all of them have special needs to some degree. The school is generally supportive of all students, despite their unique challenges. However, these private schools have a very restricted environment, and your child’s school friends will only be those with challenges and special needs.
