  1. Our son is at The Hillside School in Macungie, PA (https://hillsideschool.org/), “an independent school for students in first through 8th grade who have language-based learning disabilities as well as auditory, visual, and sensory processing disorders that affect learning. These include dyslexia, dysgraphia and dyscalculia, working memory deficits, ADHD, executive functioning deficits, and nonverbal learning issues.” (Taken from their home page) Maximum class size is 8 students.

  2. There is a great middle school in San Francisco Called My City School that specializes in ADHD/ADD. They run grades 5-8. http://WWW.mycityschool.org. they also support Executive Functioning and other learning challenges. It’s a great hands on STEAM program and they have summer camps too.
