The Schoolsearch Guide to Private Schools for Students with Learning Disabilities.
This directory is designed to provide access to appropriate remedial resources offered by or through private schools for children (from ages 2-22) with specific learning disabilities. The directory lists 305 schools in three sections: (1) private schools for students with learning disabilities; (2) schools that have a learning disability program within their regular private school; and (3) schools that accommodate students with minimal learning disabilities. Within each section, schools are listed alphabetically by state. In the first two sections, each school's description provides information such as address, telephone number, date founded, contact person, facilities, admission requirements, student/faculty ratio, length of school day, faculty profile, expenses and financial aid, frequency and type of progress reports, graduation requirements, student profile, support programs, educational programs, extracurricular activities, athletic facilities, athletic programs, and summer programs. In addition, schools were asked to briefly state how students who are "hard to reach" are taught and what is unique about the school or the program. The third section lists schools that accommodate students with minimal learning disabilities and offers information on tutoring and accommodations for learning-disabled students. Three introductory chapters discuss identification of the student's educational needs and goals, procedures for finding a suitable school, and steps to facilitate the application process. (JDD)
