Manus Academy Special needs Autism & ADHD School

Manus Academy

Our mission at Manus Academy Charlotte, NC is to help students with learning barriers & special needs, including autism and ADHD, achieve academic and social success.  Our school fulfills this mission through four services:

Manus Academy

We provide an accommodating learning environment in which each student feels safe and supported and we follow a four-step sequence to ensure fully customized instruction.


Manus Tutoring

In our after-school tutoring program, we work with students who attend other schools. We provide one-to-one instruction in basic skills, specific subjects and homework and study skills.


Manus Curriculums

At Manus Curriculums, our online store, we offer our academic process and curricula to teachers working with students with specific needs.


The Manus Minute

In our blog, the Manus Minute, we share information with parents and other teachers who wish to increase their effectiveness in working with children with academic barriers.

    We’re absolutely thrilled with our son’s grades this year! He thanks me often for having made the decision for him to attend Manus. He says, “It’s changed my life!” Mother’s intuition may have known that a big change was needed.

  • Our son has attended Manus for two years. He attended two other schools in the Charlotte area before attending Manus. He needs the one-on-one attention, small classroom, and calm environment Manus provides.

    I consider my family extremely lucky to have found Manus Academy and its wonderful staff. There is a sense of calm and comfort that my son has now. It is a special school where all the kids support each other despite their vast differences.

    I am thrilled that we found Manus Academy. Previously, my son had a miserable year in the sixth grade in the local public school where he was given a low D in math – his favorite subject and his strength. At Manus, he has blossomed.
