If your son is managing at home, and does not require out of home placement, an alternative is a private, therapeutic day program, where his clinical (as well as his learning) needs can be addressed. In order to qualify for
such a placement, a child usually has had to exhaust whatever resources
are available within the public school system. At that point, children are referred to what is often called an out-of-district placement, schools that are operated by private agencies or organizations.
