HI.

Looking at moving to area and need some advice on schools, both public and private that have excellent programs for kids with Aspergers, Bi-Polar, OCD, etc..

Also, looking for advice on Therapists, Doctors and any other pertinent resources.

Thanks in advance.

Mike

Default Walbridge School

I have heard good things about the Wallbridge School in Madison. They have a 6 to 1 student to teacher ratio and teach a variety of challenged kids. The website is Welcome to Walbridge School.

My nephew went to Walbridge because he wasn't succeeding in the public school system. He seemed to do okay there. I think it is more for kids with emotional problems/learning disabilities, though I guess aspergers is sort of an emotional problem or at least a human relational problem. I wasn't under the impression they were set up for something as specialized as autism, but it is worth checking out.

the funding has deteriorated for kids with autism in madison; i don't think there are any "excellent" schools. another reader mentioned the family therapy center for mental health treatment--everyone there is top-notch, but i don't know if anyone specializes in autism!

Check into Glen Stephens Elementary. I have been told by my neighbors that they moved into our neighborhood so that their kids with special needs could attend this school.

Default Verona

I have a friend who is a retired school teacher. She met many people that moved into the Verona area, because the Verona Schools were suppose to be a positive experience for students with autism. Supposedly, a website used as a resource in the autism community recommended Verona.
