    this school is very very special. All the staff at p224 works together to give the children there the support they need. Their system called power of choice works very well for my son who is ADHD and has speech issues too. I have seen my son learn to express himself at his young age of 6 in more ways than i could ever imagine. My son loves to go to school and is doing very well there
