We have a high-functioning autistic 10 year old son and are looking for camps that are good for him. I was wondering if anyone might have some suggestions.

Thanks in advance.

We're moving back in August with a HFA 6 year old and have found services through the Special Ed Park Districts (Frankfort, Homer, Lemont, Orland Park areas), Little Friends (Naperville) and one website 'Autism Community Connection' lists many different options for all ages in many areas. We are focusing on social skill programs, so I'm not sure if any of these help. I'll be interested in other responses you receive.

If you don't mind me asking, what school district are you presently in, what do you like about it and what do you dislike about it? We're getting ready to take a home finding trip and trying to narrow down the areas. Thanks!
