Which state has the best care for autism?
I have 2 boys, ages 2 & 3, both diagnosed with autistic disorder, and I am not satisfied with the options for learning environments for them in Oklahoma. Anyone know where the very best care, schooling, and government funding is for this growing problem?
Honest to god, Rochester, NY is a great city to have a child or children with special needs. We have many, many resources throughout the entire community.
BOCES is a school district that has a few different schools in this area. Students with special needs can go there, it is a wonderful place. BOCES also has programs with public schools. Some students go to BOCES half of the day and the other half are in the public schools. They have a wonderful program that works for your child. They are very personal and care about your goals as parents. You will be fully informed and part of every decision that goes into your child’s education. It is wonderful!
Also, we have a great Advocacy Center. Check out their website:http://www.advocacycenter.com/. There are so many programs and resources there to educate the parents on what they can do to help make their child’s life a little easier, what options there are educationally, programs, support groups, etc.
NY in general is known for it’s resources and care for children with special needs. I would recommend checking out the following links under the resources. Even give the Advocacy Center or BOCES a phone call with any questions you might have. Everyone is very welcoming and ready to help in any way they can.
Good luck! 🙂
