April 15, 2011

WESTFORD, Ma – Porter Sargent Handbooks' Guide to Private Special Education earned a rave review from The Midwest Book Review's April 2011 edition of Small Press Bookwatch.

"With an index of many schools and what they can focus on, their location, contact information, their type, tuition, and much more, Guide to Private Special Education is a must for parents considering other options for their special needs child," the review says.

Published in February 2011, the Guide to Private Special Education outlines educational programs for families and consultants looking to place elementary and secondary students with special needs in the most optimal learning environments when public schools are no longer an option.

A follow-up to the highly regarded Directory for Exceptional Children, the Guide sharpens its focus to private schools to provide vital data on more than 450 day and residential programs across the country. Special-needs conditions addressed include ADD, ADHD, dyslexia and other learning disabilities, blindness and visual impairment, deafness and hearing impairment, deaf-blindness, emotional disturbances, intellectual disabilities (mental retardation), multiple disabilities, orthopedic/neurological impairments, autism and pervasive developmental disorder, speech/language impairments, substance abuse and traumatic brain injury.
