The EDUFAX Educational FAQ

I have a LEARNING DISABILITY.....

Question #62:
  • We have a 4th grade daughter with diagnosed LD, and are exploring private schools. What are the private schools in Connecticut that accept LD students or work exclusively with LD children?
Answer #62:
  • There are many private schools in CT, both residential and day, which work wonders for children who have learning disabilities. However, some schools work well for children with certain types of LD and some work well for children with other types. The spectrum of learning disabilities is extremely broad and it would be impossible to recommend a school without knowing exactly what accommodations and remediation your daughter needs.
    When choosing a school for your daughter, be careful to find an environment which challenges her and does not assume that her learning disability makes her unable to learn. Be sure to find a school where they will help her find the way that she learns best and set her on a journey toward success and self-esteem.
    Some of the schools in CT & MA which say that they are prepared to teach children with learning disabilities are:
    • Ben Bronz Academy, West Hartford, CT
    • Eagle Hill, Greenwich, CT
    • Eagle Hill, Southport, CT
    • Foundation School, New Haven, CT
    • High Road Student Learning Center, Wallingford, CT
    • Hope Academy, Milford, CT
    • The Learning Center, Brooklyn, CT
    • Villia Maria Education Center, Stamford, CT
    • White Oak School, West Springfield, MA
    • Woodhall School, Bethlehem, CT
    You can the homepages and email addresses of these and many other Indpendent / Private / Boarding Schools on the EDUFAX Independent School List.
    I urge you to find an educational consultant who is familiar with the schools and who will evaluate your daughter's abilities to make the right match.
    EDUFAX provides services for the Learning Disabled Student.
