What kind of programs are available for gifted kids diagnosed with Asperger's and ADHD?

My son is 8 and he's been home schooled up to this point.

Different school districts and systems have different options for home-schooled children. You can also find particular programs in your area by contacting national organizations that specialize in assisting families and individuals with Asperger's and ADHD. There are non-profit groups based in New York and Washington, D.C. that can connect you with local contacts in your area.

If you are going to put him into school now, you may want to check with the school he will be going to to see if they have any.

Public schools offer special aids, teachers and classes for children with more specific needs. They have to be considered "highly qualified" by the state. To do this they must take course continuously through their career to learn new skills and keep old skills highly tuned.
