An anectdotal comment: A former coworker of mine moved out of RRISD to Leander ISD because they were not happy with the support for his Autistic son. IIRC they were happy with their choice.

I don't have Autistic son but a son that does need a 504 and IEP and so far Leander ISD has been very kind and even helpful in setting everything up. We moved here in at the end of May so I have yet to see it first hand. I did met a second grade teacher that is a neighbor at the local park and she said that LISD tries very hard to make the education fit the kid not the other way around. You might want to call LISD and see what they have to offer.

Good Luck
