Did you know that there are schools created especially for students with Attention Deficit Disorder?

The most recent is a school in Arizona called Lexis Preparatory School, scheduled to open this August. The school will serve kids with ADHD from kindergarten to 8th grade. You can read about it here.

Arizona residents are blessed to have a number of schools aimed specifically at ADHD students from which to choose. The resources continue through college; the University of Arizona’s SALT program has been in place for many years and does an outstanding job of working with ADHD students.

There are actually a number of schools across the country dedicated to students with ADHD. The schools are most often private, and often concentrate on skills such as organization and time management as well as traditional scholastic subjects. Some are similar to parochial schools, in that they teach religion as well as reading and math. Some are aimed just at boys, and some expand their focus to include students with Aspergers, dyslexia, and more.

Here are some links for more information:

The Hunter School

    Brenda,

    Great info on a valuable topic! In the San Diego area I’d like to recommend the Balboa City School and the Rancho Encinitas Academy (where my son went) and the Winston School and High Tech High. As for summer camps for kids with ADHD, every year CHADD.org puts out an issue of their Attention Magazine especially about summer camps. It’s a good resource. Since I’m a life coach for people with ADHD, I also feel very strongly that any school can be ADHD-friendlier with the help of a coach. If a school doesn’t provide the kind of support a student with ADHD needs to stay organized and on top of things, a coach can fill that void. A great place to find coaches for students with ADHD is at http://www.EdgeFoundation.org.

    All my best,
    Sarah Wright

    Thank you, Sarah, for the valuable information!

    I agree with you that a coach of some sort – whether a life coach or and adhd coach – can be a big help to students with ADHD. I actually functioned in that capacity when I worked at Schoolcraft College in Michigan.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Your post ADHD Schools was very interesting when I found it over google on Tuesday by my search for private and parochial schools. I have your blog now in my bookmarks and I visit your blog again, soon. Take care.
