I am a single mother needing to relocate to the coastal area (Wilmington, etc) of NC from Chapel Hill, NC...I have one child in a special Pre-K program and another child in Kindergarten. Both of my children have autism and related disorders and would be in specialized special education classrooms in schools. I'm desperately needing info on safe, pleasant area to rent either apt, house, condo or townhouse? Especially interested in what elementary schools are better and if anyone has specific info or experiences in certain school's exceptional student, spec ed programs? While I have been looking at Wilmington, I'm very open to there or any other coastline community that has the best schools/spec ed programs/safe pleasant living community. I just want to make the right move..... Can anyone help?? Thank you soooo much.

I found White Oak Elementary in Cape Caretert has a great special needs program, it really stems from Carteret County schools supporting the program...

sunday's Star news has a excellent article about New Hanover school district
and children with autism. seems like this is one county that is ahead of the curve.
while it mainly talks about middle and high school you might be able to find contacts thru the
article.see if you can look it up online.
