He's going into 4th grade in September and has been doing fine in a mainstream classroom. One of the things the report also mentions is that he's going to have a very rough time in middle school because students are given more freedom, there's less structure and they have to change classes for each subject.
His dr. mentioned a specialized school that district could pay for (if we fight to the death for it) when he begins middle school - he doesn't need it yet. This school has very bright and very high function, yet quirky Asperger kids. They don't change classes, they create a special IEP for each of their students, they have OT, PT, Socialization Groups. A full range of services that our school district doesn't provide even though they think they do.
Does anyone have experience with a specialized school? Has the specialized school helped your child when you took him out of the public school system? Any feedback would be great.
