These schools offer comprehensive programs that pay close attention to your child's individual needs, and extra programs that will assist your child’s development and ensure that he or she does not fall behind either socially or academically.

While each individual with learning disabilities is different, special needs boarding schools (also known as "special needs residential schools") will cater to your child's unique aptitudes and weaknesses and allow him or her to flourish.

There are many types of boarding schools for students with special needs (including boarding schools for troubled teens), so identifying which style of student would succeed in boarding schools, in general, is impossible.

You must find a school that specializes in your child’s specific condition. This includes boarding schools for learning disabilities, behavioural issues, troubled teens, ADHD, autism, Asperger's, and dyslexia.  

Be sure to check out our list below, as it offers a wide spectrum of boarding schools. You may also wish to view our database of boarding schools in Canada. Our list of the best boarding schools for special needs is sortable based on any criteria you choose.  

Benefits of boarding school for students with special needs

There are many reasons to select a private boarding school (or residential school) for your special need child. Here are some advantages that are unique to these types of schools:

Paying for private boarding school
