We have been so happy since we found the Burkard School, which is specifically for bright children with ASD, ADHD, and similar disorders requiring extra support in the classroom. They are a relatively new K-8 school. My daughter now has friends, feels smart, and enjoys school. The only negative is that it is in San Mateo. Besides that, it is perfect for us, and we're able to make the commute work. The school even received a waiver for in-person education, since the school is so small, they have excellent safety practices, and they serve students with (minor) special needs. Feel free to contact me off-list if the location isn't a deal-breaker. (That goes for anyone else reading the message in the future.)
