A typical school classroom tends to be an overwhelming environment for a child with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Students with this condition typically have difficulty focusing, sitting still, and remaining quiet in class. In many cases, they interrupt teachers, fidget, do not follow directions, and act impulsively. If a school does not properly deal with these behaviours, it could become stressful and alienating for your child. As such, private schools which are specially equipped for students with ADHD are important to consider.

American Private Schools

The United States provides many great private schools that will welcome your child with ADHD into their warm and caring environments. These institutions may offer such learning supports as:

  • Extra-help sessions outside of class
  • Extra-curricular activities
  • Smaller or limited class sizes
  • Programs that are geared specially toward students with ADHD

Furthermore, private schools often allow you to constantly consult with staff. Indeed, you and your child's instructors could meet regularly and establish clear educational goals together. At these meetings, you might also learn how to improve his or her home environment or nightly routines. In short, private schools may give you the chance to collaborate with teachers in order to provide your child with the most productive school experience.

Paying for Private School

Private schools in the United States might be costly but you may wish to explore possible help from your local community or from the school itself. There are numerous organizations willing to help with children with special needs. On the other hand, the school to which you send your child may offer both scholarships and bursaries. Financial aid is quite common for children with ADHD.

Choosing a School

Here are a few useful tips for choosing a private school for your son or daughter with ADHD:

  • When you are choosing a school, be sure to ask as many questions as you could possibly think of. You should speak to a given school's teachers, administrators, students, and parents. How large is the school?
  • Never lie or hide information! The school needs a lot of information about your child for two reasons. First, it must decide whether it will accept him or her. This step is not as important as many parents believe it is. Although you never want to get rejected, you should not seek to enroll your child in a school that the administrators would deem him or her unfit for had they known more about your son or daughter. Let them tell you whether there is a fit. Second, choosing a school is really difficult if you do not know whether it can best serve your child. And, the only way the school could tell you if there is such a match is if they have sufficient knowledge about your kid.
  • Find out about what the school offers outside of class.
