My husband's coworker has a child with special needs (I don't know the full details), and they've been living in the Moorseville area. They are actually planning on going back to New York b/c they have gotten little support/help for their child via school system.

Can anyone recommend which of the districts in the Charlotte/immediate vicinity is the best in terms of providing support/help for special needs?

Thought of you guys as soon as he asked me.

Thanks.

Sad to hear about their decision...

We have a friend whose child is extremely challenged (needs wheelchair, feeding etc) and goes to Endhaven Elementary School. The kid gets individual attention and is well cared for.

He is slowly progressing in academics as well.

I think the situation differs from school to school, but Ballantyne area schools have great appreciation for such kids. Please ask the friend to visit the Ballatyne are school (especially Endhaven) if their child is in elementary.
