Middle schools support kids with poor working memory in East Bay

Hi Community,

I have a daughter who has no behavioural issues but struggles academically. She attends a one to one school and is coping with the work. She has been diagnosed with poor working memory, which results in difficulty following multi-step instruction and she struggles to retain information. We moved to WC, she attends a one to one school, but has no social engagement. Can anyone please suggest any other middle schools that could provide her with support, and the social aspects that are missing?

Orinda Academy has grade 8 and focuses on students with executive functioning issues, slow processing, and mild-moderate learning differences.  It's a great school with a lot of built in structure to the day and 8:1 student teacher ratio, and learning support coordinator.  You can email me with more questions.
