Relocating to Atlanta. Looking for mainstream schools that accomodates special needs.

Relocating to the Atlanta area. My son will be in 5th grade 2011-2012 school year. Interested in schools that will adapt my son's existing IEP program, with staff/admin educated in dealing with special needs students. And also looking for group/parent advocates for Asperger Syndrome children. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

We have a child within the autism spectrum who attends Woodland Elementary (North Fulton county).
Our experience with the school admin, teachers and specialists has been excellent - for 3 years now. As always, it's a two way I find you'll have to be ready to get involve, support what they do and reinforce at home. We've received a very professional treatment, care for our child and tons of improvement in development.
Hope this helps!

Hawthorne Elementary School in Dekalb County offers an inclusion program in grades 1-5 for most classrooms. Inclusing classrooms serve both typically-developing and special needs students with IEPs. Each inclusion classroom has both a regular education teacher and a special education teacher. My children have had excellent experiences there.
