School choices for speech delayed 10 year old
December 03, 2008
My family is moving to Portland next year and I am seeking advice for school choices (public or private) for my 10-year-old daughter who is speech delayed/ADD and needs smaller, individualized curriculum and small class sizes. She also receives speech therapy. She currently attends a school in Sarasota, Florida called Dreams are Free which is a private school for average to high intelligent kids with learning disabilities. They teach the kids in ways that they can learn. I would prefer a public school and am looking at homes in Milwaulkie, Oregon City, West Linn, Lake Oswego, and may SW Portland. Does anyone have any feedback on the schools in these communities...positive or negative? Any help or guidance would be appreciated! Thanks so much.
