Susanne, thanks for your question. I too have heard mixed things about Marlboro's program. How old is the child you will have entering the Special Ed program? While I don't have personal experience with Marlboro's program I do have experience with Colts Neck's. I had a 3-year old who wasn't speaking very much. After a speech pathology assessment that suggested private speech therapy for him, we did some research ad found out this Colts Neck has a "child's study group" that would allow my 3-year old to attend Pre-K with other children who hvw special needs. The program includes regular Pre-K education PLUS speech therapy, physical therapy for children with mobility handicaps, and other special needs program. Within 2 months my son was talking as if he never had a delay. He's been in that program for 2 years and will begin kindrrgarten next year ahead of the skill level expected of a normal 5 year old.
I realize this doesn't 100% answer your question. However, while I do some research into Marlboro's program for you, hvw you considered Colts Neck?
