On behalf of the New Hampshire Private Special Education Association (NHPSEA), formerly referred to as the Private Providers, we are pleased to provide you with this online resource.

NHPSEA formed in 1981 to facilitate excellence in programming, enhance effective communication, and foster a partnership between private special education providers and referring school districts and agencies.  NHPSEA is an association comprised of a diverse group of private schools and programs serving students with a broad range of abilities.  The individual and collective expertise of the member schools is comprehensive and represents a continuum of highly specialized services and intensive interventions.  We are proud to offer all of these services to the students of New Hampshire.

The menu across the top contains a number of resources.  The “Tips” page is provided by the NAPSEC, the National Association of Private Schools for Exceptional Children.  The “Members” page lists our current members with a brief bio and link to their respective websites.

This website was developed with resources provided by the NHPSEA.  We hope this is of use to you, and that you share it with others.  If you would like a paper copy of our directory, please contact me at the Easter Seals- Robert B. Jolicoeur School at 603.621-3602 or at jtuttle@easterseals.nh.org.,  Thank you.
