Finding an appropriate private school can be very time-consuming and difficult to do on your own. You may need some help. Many school districts have someone called the "out of district placement coordinator" (or something similar) whose job is to locate appropriate schools for students whose needs cannot adequately be met in the public school. Ask the Administrator of Special Education in your town if someone holds that title and request an appointment. You may need to contact a professional who can help you (for a fee) find an appropriate school. While you can find many "educational consultants" or "private school advisors" in the Yellow Pages, the Independent Educational Consultants Association can help you find full-time consultants who adhere to a professional code of ethics. Good luck with your search.
