According to the Mayo Clinic, spina bifida “... falls under the broader category of neural tube defects. Normally, the neural tube forms early in pregnancy, and it closes by the 28th day after conception. In babies with spina bifida, a portion of the neural tube fails to develop or close properly, causing defects in the spinal cord and in the bones of the spine.”

On this page, we list private schools for kids with spina bifida. Some of these schools also provide support for other special needs, including physical disabilities such as Cerebral Palsy (CP), Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Cystic Fibrosis (CF), and muscular dystrophy. Find a school for spina bifida near you.
