 About Us 

Who We Are


The Special Schools Coalition is a group of independent schools in the Greater Houston Area who serves children with special needs and their families. 

What We Do


All schools in SSC serve children and adolescents with special needs. From neurodevelopmental disorders to learning differences to Downs Syndrome, we are certain there is a school that will fit your family's needs! We also work with public and private schools to help identify children who may be "getting lost" in a typical classroom and help families find an atmosphere in which their children can succeed.

A Note from the President 


Welcome to The Special Schools Coalition! It is our mission to help families in the Houston area find schools to best serve their children, and to increase community awareness and support of students with special needs.
