I'm moving from Chicago, IL to Philadelphia, PA very soon. But I'm not sure where about there will be a school for my 5 yr old son with Autism. Does anyone know any schools near Roosevelt Rd and Stevens St. Thanks
I am not located in Philadelphia, but would suggest using the "Find a School" feature here at Greatschools. You'll find the link in the green bar up above. Once you find a school in the area you mentioned, give them a call to discuss your son's needs.
Does you son have an IEP in place already? Has he attended pre-K where you currently live? What kind of accommodations is he currently receiving?
You can also contact the local Autism Society of America: http://www.autism-society.org/site/PageServer?pagename=pennsylvania to check out resources in the area you're interested in. They should be able to give you helpful information regarding schools, support groups, etc.
Finally, I'd invite you to join the Autism & Asperger's Syndrome group here at Greatschools: http://community.greatschools.net/groups/18940. I've posted information on Autism and Asperger's there, as well.
Good luck, and please let us know what you find out.33480
Hi I read an older post of yours regarding a good school in Philly for your son w Autism. I am in the same boat now....searching for a grade school for my son w autism. How did you make out? Any info you have would be great. Ty76102
I am really getting discouraged. My son is in the 7th grade and has an IEP. He was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum last year. He is having a tough time learning in school and I just feel lost. He has had an IEP since 4th grade and has had little improvement. I need to know of any schools to send him to for learning, any outside programs for help. Please help me. It has been a long journey up to this point81348
Nebinger is a wonderful school and they have autistic support program there. My daughter attends that school and she has A's & B's wonderful compared to the schools my other children have attended. Wonderful atmosphere too. I think that this is one of the best in the entire Philadelphia area. I have a son who is 9 with autism. He attends Webster elementary and they have a wonderful autistic support program. Good luck!81639
