I'm in high school and I have SPD. Its very hard for me to work because I get sensory overload. Would it be a good idea to do cyber school?

I agree that you should first try to face your challenges head on. Talk with your professors and see if there are any available adjustments that could be made. Without knowing what specifically is bothering you I'm unable to offer suggestions but my advice is to be as open with those around you who have the power to help you as you can. Online class may eliminate some distractions and make school work seem easier but be sure you are the type of student who is self motivated and organized. These are key skills needed to get yourself through an online course even more so than a lecture course. If you are able to stay focused and make time to actually sit and do the course work then online schooling might be the right choice. However, if physically going to class is really the only thing that gets you started on your course work and you tend to procrastinate be weary of making such a switch.

What is you goal

Hi, I think you need to be careful and decide what you really want out of school. Would it be easier to do cyber school, probably in the sense you could concentrate better. But in the long run I think it is important to face the everyday challenges that SPD brings. Not knowing your situation I can't say for sure but I don't believe that making it "easier" will be as helpful as facing challenges head on. Good luck to you what ever you decide.
