Special Needs Placement
Discovering Your Options

Recognizing the impact that a special needs placement has on a student and on his or her family, Porter Associates Educational Consultants provides you with the needed support in finding an optimal setting. The process is often complex and overwhelming. We offer a professional and confidential atmosphere with the in-depth experience and resources you need to find a successful placement option.

We are highly-trained to provide you with unbiased advice and professional judgment to help see you through a difficult time. We can also assist with intervention and legal referrals should they be necessary.

A wide variety of settings are available for special needs placement students which may include:

  • therapeutic boarding schools
  • home-based residential programs
  • residential treatment centers
  • transitional independent living programs
  • emotional growth schools
  • outdoor therapeutic programs
  • wilderness programs
Learning Disabled: Costs may vary greatly depending on the level of disability and whether a day program or a private residential program is chosen. Some learning disabled students are also put in traditional settings and choose to be involved in after-school or summer programs.

Treatment Center Placement: Special private emotional residential treatment programs average from $3,500 to $4,500 per month.
