Special Needs

Both of our founding families have children with special needs. Our children are on the Autism Spectrum with varying degrees of severity. The highly unique educational needs of our children were a primary motivation in the founding of The Annesley Institute. We truly desire to give children with special needs every opportunity that we possibly can.

We hope that our school does not only benefit our own children, but that it becomes a tool that we can use to reach out to and support other homeschooling families with special needs children, within our community.
