Afterschool Alliance
Afterschool programs can provide important benefits to all students, including those who have learning, developmental and physical disabilities. Students in afterschool programs have better grades and behavior, increased self-esteem and more positive attitudes about school. For students with special needs, afterschool programs also provide a level of individualized attention that they might not receive during the school day. This issue brief provides examples of successful afterschool programs for special needs students. (Contains 7 endnotes.)
