We understand you have questions? Selecting the right teachers for your child is important. It is important for us too that you discuss your questions in detail.

Special education is a form of learning devised to cater development delays (physical, cognitive, scholastic skills, exceptional needs) of child to reach its utmost potential. The special education program designs the content, teaching methodology and delivery instructions to address the needs of each child.

As with so much in the world of autism, the definition of a good educational program depends upon the needs of the individual child and the expectations of the child’s parents. Thus, while any child with autism will do better in a classroom that supports his particular needs and learning style, the “best” option will depend on your child’s needs, your district’s strengths, your personal philosophy, and your pocketbook.


Mainstreaming? Inclusion? Special needs classes? Public school? Private school? Which is best for your child? The answer, of course, is — it all depends! Some questions to consider as you begin thinking about your options are:

  • Is your autistic child verbal and engaged?
  • How are her academic skills?
  • Can he handle large groups?
  • Does she do well with a lot of sensory input?
  • Does he have difficulties with focus?
  • Has she had a tough time in typical classrooms in the past?
  • What kinds of programs can your public school offer?
  • How well do local programs fit your child’s needs and abilities?
  • Are there local private or charter options that make logistical and financial sense for your family?
