Emme Stone, an editor on the project notes, "A list of this kind is both unique and necessary to families who are looking for a private school that will best serve the special needs of their children. Additionally, teachers and school administrators who routinely recommend the most appropriate educational placement for all students depend upon thorough, accurate information about the availability and specializations of a wide range of private special needs schools.
