The EDUFAX Educational FAQ


Question #61:
  • I am trying to find an independent day school in either Oregon or Washington that addresses the educational needs of students with non-verbal learning disabilities. Do you know of any such schools in those states with solid reputations? Do you have a listing of schools for students with non-verbal learning disabilities (NLDs)?
Answer #61:
  • I am sorry to say that a list of schools which focus exclusively on the needs of students with NLD and state that they do so would be pathetically short.
    Although there might be some day schools which could meet the needs of students with NLD in the states you mention, very few specifically declare that they do so. The closest one I can tell you about is the Orion School in Moraga, California. In the fall of 2003, the Franklin Academy will open in East Haddam, CT with the specific mission of education children in grades 6-12 with nonverbal learning disorders. Franklin Academy will have both residential and day components to their program.
    Small independent schools that are willing to help build an individualized program for students with NLD can help them achieve academic and social success in school. The program has to be carefully developed, however, with input from the neuropsychologist, learning specialists, and all the teachers and staff members involved.
    Then - and here's the rub - it has to be followed consistently. I have seen this work at some small Christian day schools or at Jewish day schools that are willing to really commit to a family. Unfortunately, when the program starts to unravel, the kid does too.
    EDUFAX provides services for the Learning Disabled Student.
