My 7 year old son was diagnosed earlier this year with ADHD. He completed first grade at a White Plains public school but they have informed us that they will not be able to support him moving forward. During the CSE meeting we agreed to explore other options outside the school district. They provided us with a potential list of schools which we've since researched and in our opinion, neither meets our son's needs.


He is ADHD but not LD. He is average to above average academically and cognitively. We want him in an environment where he can thrive academically, socially and emotionally.


We are looking for recommendations of schools or programs within a school that you may be familiar with that are better suited for children with ADHD. It can be a public or private school. Any information or leads you can offer is appreciated. Thank you.

you might check to see if your state has an Advocacy program. They can assign an Advocate to work with you to navigate the system and make sure your child is getting the support and services he needs. Does he have an IEP in place that outline the accommodations he needs to be successful educationally?

We had our first CSE meeting this week to determine eligibility. It was agreed that he does require services and we worked on an IEP together which should go into effect in September.

I reached out to an advocate today. The consult is free and I'm hoping to get as much information as possible because we will not be able to afford an hourly rate.


Thank you for your response.
