Special Needs Schools

Parents League Special Needs School Advisors are knowledgeable about schools for children with special needs including preschools, day schools in the city and boarding schools across the country. Phone consultations can be scheduled and are included with Parents League membership.

In addition, the Parents League holds four Special Needs Group Discussion Sessions during the academic year. Following a support group format and facilitated by our special needs advisors, these sessions are opportunities to discuss all aspects of educating and parenting children with special needs. Attendance at the group discussion is included with membership.
