Hi, I am currently trying to write a business plan to open a special needs school in the South East. I'm aiming for it to be a government funded free school but if that doesn't get accepted I will look into an independent school. This school would have a completely holistic approach so the child's education would be shaped to meet them there would be no one size fits all approach, it would be under the ABA/VB umbrella but in no way rigidly stuck to ABA if it didn't work for a child, its more the 1:1 approach that we are interested in. Each child would receive 1:1 tuition during all lessons. I am aware that there are similar schools in the area however they typically only accept children with a diagnoses of ASD and where I would want this school to differ is that it would accept children that have a diagnoses of SEN but it would not have to be ASD.

My question to you is how much of a demand is there for this kind of thing? Is it something you would be interested in?

You need to repost this at the above location. This part of the board gets very little traffic!

Hi

I would say there is a big demand for this type of school, my oldest son is dyslexic and he has to go to school out of the county (Kent) because of current lack of provision for him.

I have only just seen your post now, so I would love to hear what progress you have made with your business plan
