Maybe public school isn’t working for your child. The evaluations, the IEP, the small classes, speech therapy, and accommodations are all in place. And yet, your child is still falling behind. You feel you’ve got to make a change.
In this case you need to work with your school system to get them to recognize this. There are a few dispute resolution mechanisms provided. It is important that you follow the procedure otherwise, you can jeopardize the chances of the school district paying for your child’s placement in a private school.
How to Determine Which School is Right For Your Child
It’s important to know which schools have the right programs to help your child. Some schools may not be good with your child’s disability and may not even accept someone with a particular disability.
EA Can Help
There are many websites offering assistance with picking out a school for learning disabilities. However, without someone actually talking with you and your child and reviewing the assessments and IEP, it would be difficult to know if the school was right for your child. You also do not want someone who is recommending a school that they haven’t actually seen.
I’ve personally toured over 100 schools across the country and only recommend those that best match your child’s needs. I am always touring new schools and observing their programs in action.
