A New Direction for Schools?

It may not be new, but it's certainly rare.  I recently heard of a private school that has created classes for children who have learning disabilities, attention deficit disorder, and other conditions that keep them from learning up to their potential in a typical classroom.

The school, Los Altos Christian, formed classes of no more than 10 students, and uses curricula which uses techniques proven to help kids who struggle in a "regular" classroom.  I'm going to meet with their principal to find out how this works, and I'll keep everyone posted.

How exciting that something like this actually exists!  I wonder if it would be possible to have similar classes, even at an additional cost, in public schools.

More on this as I get more information.  Meanwhile, I'd love to hear people's experiences and thoughts as to how this could work in their community school.
