School districts with support for autism spectrum
Our 2.5-year-old son has significant communication/speech delays, and he is now in the process of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) evaluation. Our older son (4.5 years) is a developmentally typical kid, and in fact, he loves academically challenging environments. We would like to settle in a place before our older son starts kindergarten.
Are there school districts that have great special education programs as well as strong academics? Are certain districts easier to work with than others? We would appreciate any district information in the East Bay, from Richmond to Fremont. Please share any and all experiences. We really appreciate your insight! We are very overwhelmed.
It would be especially helpful to hear from parents whose children are on the autism spectrum, but I would love to hear from parents of children with a range of disabilities as well.
Thank you in advance.
