Absolutely the BEST school that any child with autism, ADHD, or other related disorders. #1 the teachers go FAR BEYOND the call of duty!! They treat the kids like GOLD. #2 the kids love it because there is NO HOMEWORK!! Yet, academically they are each challenged. #3 martial arts is an integral part of the program!! #4 it's totally FREE !. #5 if you live in Youngstown, Poland, Boardman transportation is provided, also FREE. #6 it's in a GREAT neighborhood!! #7 many of the teachers are also counselors! Socialization is an ongoing part of the curriculum.
This is the best school for kids that learn differently, have a delay in social skills or have other specialized needs. The staff are experienced professionals that know what the kids need and how to handle them. The kids have an abundance of projects & innovative learning tools. This has been a Godsend for my son who came from a public school. I was getting phone calls daily when he went there. This is a small environment with a lot of individualized attention which was something he required.
