I've heard that this can be an issue, private schools generally don't have the resources or funding for special ed.

Hello,

It is great that you are being proactive; that will really save you a lot of time and heart ache down the line.

Thanks for the info. As much as I'd like to believe that our son's Dx may "fall off" before he is 5 (denial, anyone?), I'll anticipate that he will need special education and plan ahead for public school placement. Lots of learning ahead for us but I so appreciate the experienced moms here who have been there and done that. I would so like to be sitting around a living room exchanging information with many of you. Since that's not possible, this is the next best thing and I am really grateful for the boards.
