What is EDUFAX?
The EDUFAX Educational FAQ
I have a LEARNING DISABILITY.....
take me back to the list of questions
- 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
- 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
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
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.
