  1. My name is Alex Brosowsky and I am the school’s Founding Director. We are starting a wonderful new program. Anyone interested in the Prospect School should visit our website at theprospectschool.org. You are also welcome to read my blog at theprospectschool.wordpress.com.

    Alex,
    Thanks for writing in. Tell us about the mission of the school as well as how it’s connected to the Wooster School. What are the priorities for this first school year?

    Thanks again.
    Sanford

    FYI, Sanford & others, Alex resigned from Prospect without notice per Wooster administrators. There is no director in place at Prospect to start the school year this 2011-2012 year (although they are apparently still going to open at this time). Wooster was to fund Prospect for it’s first 3 years. We were intrigued by Alex’s vision & found the Danbury location & access to Wooster’s facilities equally appealing for our child who needed a different approach than the public schools were able to offer for learning. We are extremely disheartened by the news of Alex’s resignation.

    Disappointed,
    Thanks for the news. I haven’t had this news verified yet by the school but thought it was important to put out there.

    Will you still enroll your child?

  5. Disappointed in Ct says:

    Sanford,
    Sadly, no. There are too many uncertainties.

    Larry,
    I’m happy to post this and let people know of your tutorial services, but you’ve sent your comment in this thread about a “New School Program for Students with Learning Disabilities in CT.” instead of LD Support Professionals.

    Hi Tad. Thanks for writing in. Given the news of the founding director backing out from the position, can you fill us in on where things stand with the school?

    Is there an updated list of preferred schools for LD / Dyslexic / ADHD kids? Trying to make a decision to move to private. Thank you!

  12. Sanford says:

    Hi Christine. Thanks for writing in. There’s some updating going on with this website, and more to come, so the database of schools, while still searchable, needs tweaking. The visits and lists are older though many of the schools are still current and can provide a jumping off place for many.

    While most all of the schools have their upsides and benefits, there’s never been a one size fits all capacity for what you’re contemplating. I’ve been a school director of LD schools as well as a placement consultant and what is preferred for one kid may not be right for another.

    What types of attributes are you looking for?
