Thoughts on School Fit
Hi everyone, just some thoughts on school fit. We moved to Denver from California in no small part due to school opportunities here for our kids. When going through the school selection process it was hard because each school filters down what they will and won't accept. Some won't accept any behavior issues at all, but can deal with learning differences. Some have larger classes and some are smaller. Generally speaking, I found flexibility from the administrators to be key in the fit. Those that wanted to work with you and form a partnership with the parents were the best. Any other thoughts to share?
So true, finding the right school which would provide the right support is no easy feat. Even the schools that cater to neurodiverse kids sometimes won't work fo you child. We visited many schools and evenetually found ACA that works best for our son
We were able to find an education consultant local to our area in California (Marin county) which was tremendously useful. She had deep knowledge of all the schools including the new ones that were just opening, their unique strengths and what type of learner the school does best for. We really struggled to even find the right schools to consider until we found her and she helped us land in the exact right place. Hopefully Neuro School Network will be a great resource but it's new so for now I'd still lean on an education consultant. It's tough to find them but we just kept asking locals - parents, teachers, administrators, tutors....anyone in the know and eventually found the go-to consultant for our area.
Thx for the responses. I agree very much with the education consultant approach. Its such a big decision it is worth having the expertise in your corner.
