Schools for Learning Differences Grade 2
Hi, I am looking to move my second grader to a new school. We need a school that can teach a bright, social, vocal girl who also has various learning differences. My daughter needs a multi sensory learning environment with teachers who understand how to support a child with ADD/ADHD, Sensory Integration difficulties, and mild behavior challenges. My daughter is 7.5, but has the social compete of a kid closer to 6.5 (weak executive functioning, and needs support with some social cues). My daughter is currently in a main stream private school- she thrived in kindergarten and first grade, however due to new teachers, and some changes in supports provided by the school we are struggling. I need a school that can take some time modify her school work so that she can keep up with the pace of a classroom- or at least be aware when she may feel overwhelmed. I am searching for a school with an excellent learning specialist and hopefully a strong social emotional component as well (ideally with a specialist on staff).
I would love advice on choosing a school that supports kids with learning differences. My daughter will be in 3rd grade in 2019/2020.
