Hi. I'm not in NJ, but I have a child with some special needs. Obviously, children's needs can vary greatly, and, for example, a child with physical disabilities who may be in a wheelchair is going to have different considerations than a child who perhaps has autism. A school may be better equipped to handle one type of student than another.
I always recommend that parents try to contact a local support group for whatever their child's disabilities are (ie, www.chadd.org for ADHD, www.interdys.org for reading/dyslexia issues, www.autismspeaks.org or www.autism-society.org for spectrum issues, www.thearc.org for Down's, etc) and network through those families to find out about the best schools and other resources in a given community. I hope this helps.
