Schools for kids with muscular dystrophy

Find the top private schools offering support for muscular dystrophy

Muscular dystrophy is a neuromuscular disorder which weakens the body’s muscles. Causes, symptoms, age of onset, and prognosis vary between individuals.

Moreover, according to the Mayo Clinic, “there are many different kinds of muscular dystrophy. Symptoms of the most common variety begin in childhood, mostly in boys. Other types don’t surface until adulthood.”

Below, we list private schools for kids with muscular dystrophy. Some of these schools also provide support for other special needs, including physical disabilities such as Cerebral Palsy (CP), Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Cystic Fibrosis (CF), and spina bifida.
