Does anyone know of any special needs schools in the NNJ area that they could reccommend? My son is 12 and has behavioral issues (adhd, ODD, bi-polar symptoms). He was going to a alternative private school last year that he loved, but unfortunately his behavioral issues( not listening, following rules, some safety concerns-climbing the roof etc..) were getting in the way and he couldn't continue. So he is being home tutored for now, but was approved for out-of-district placement and although we do hope he can one day return to his old private school for now maybe it would be good for him to see what a good opportunity he was in by going to a out of district school for a year. Also I am nervous of putting him in a "behavioral" school for fear he will pick up "more" behavioral things. He's not into drugs, alchohol, and is "usually" pretty honest. So we will look at some schools that our district has suggested, but it would be nice if anyone had any others to personally suggest on here?
In the end if we don't like the school programs that are available then we will just go back to HS'ing (we did that the two years prior to the last year). Its just he really is social and wanted more kids around more frequently than HS'ing was providing.
