Special needs schools in the United States are specialised for students with any type of physical, communicative, mental or social difficulties, including Asperger's syndrome, ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) and Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). Private US schools offering small and individualized classes may often be the best option for your son or daughter.

The enrolment process is not based on any official laws governing educational authorities. Rather, a school's policies and a parent's choice are the sole decision-makers in the enrolment process. Parents often choose a school in US because of the unique programs offered there. 

The best way to identify whether a private school is a fit for your child is to ask a lot of questions; speak with students, parents, administrators and teachers. Try to envision whether your child will thrive in that school. Moreover, make sure that you are honest during in-person interviews and written applications. For example, parents may coach their child too much in what to say or how to succeed in the application and interview process. The problem with this strategy is it may not let the school's administrators identify whether their school could help your child flourish.

Below, please find private schools with special needs programs or support in the United States (US). This includes schools in the states of Massachusetts, New York, New Hampshire, and Washington.
