Hi. Unfortunately, Greatschools is a nationwide website, and the chance of finding another family from a particular area with a child of similar age and with similar issues is slim.
I'm not from TX, but I have a son with some LDs, and I can tell you that certain schools might have good reputations for handling one kind of special ed need, but not for others. (For example, I've been told that students with physical impairments who do better in a self-contained environment get a very good education at one school in our district, but if parents want their child in a regular classroom at other schools with an aide, the quality can vary.)

My advice is to contact a local parent support group for whatever kind of disabilities your child has, and network through them to find out about the best schools and other resources in the area you're thinking of moving to. (for example, www.thearc.org or www.autismspeaks.org can help families dealing with Downs, and spectrum disorders. www.chadd.org is for ADHD, www.interdys.org is for dyslexics, and there are other groups like Easter Seals, etc....)
