Resources for preschooler with autism - and his parents!
Our almost four year old has ASD. He is high functioning, but still struggles in the social/school setting. He has an IEP and just started a three hour/day program through WCCUSD. I'd love to hear what else is out there in our community for young children on the spectrum. Particularly, we are looking for an afternoon preschool/daycare program for him in the Richmond/El Cerrito/Kensington/Albany/Berkeley area, that either specializes in ASD or is at least devoted to inclusion and accommodation (we can provide an aide if necessary). He has been fairly successful in two mainstream preschools, but does need additional attention/support. Also, are there any other organizations, playgroups, sports programs, where a child with ASD would be welcomed and accommodated? Basically, I just want to know what is out there for him/us. It would also be great to find a support network for parents of children with ASD or other special needs. Thank you hive mind!
