which of these schools include grades 9-12?

Sanford Shapiro

I have been traveling throughout different regions of the US, in order to visit independent schools that serve students with learning disabilities. The website has been hosting the write ups I post on each school. This year I will travel to about 60 schools and have been funded to do this by a generous parent of a child with ld, who wants to make it easier for parents nationwide to find the right school for their child. Rich Wanderman of LD Resources has helped us in this project and ultimately we will have a database that is searchable by learning profile descriptors as well as geography. You can find all this at the ldresources site under "Shapiro Visits K-12 Schools." LDResources is a really helpful site for anyone looking for informational resources concerning ld issues.

Julia, thanks for your comment.

I know very little about dyslexia in Florida. I suggest you contact the Florida branch of the International Dyslexia Association for a referral to a neuropsychologist or an educational psychologist who specializes in assessment of children with learning difficulties

my daughter is 11& struggling in school...She is in a GREAT school, but a Dyslexia learner is not something they can handle. what can I do. this is her first year (6th) grade in this school, and I thought I was done searching because the school goes all the way to the 12th grade! (her reading and comprehension is on a 3rd to 4th grade level). The school is aware that she is Dyslexic and provide her with a resource teacher that is not enough. We live n Brooklyn, ny
