Special Needs Schools

Special Needs Junior Boarding Schools

Schools for special needs focus on students that have non-verbal learning disorders such as Asperger’s Syndrome or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and verbal learning disorders such as Dyslexia. Some are also well equipped to handle behavioral disorders. These schools will often base their admissions on age rather than grade. Unfortunately the number of special needs schools for younger children declined during the COVID pandemic and now only one is known to remain.

A secure, structured, nurturing environment supports and stimulates the development of the whole child.
