We will be moving to w/in 25 miles of Madison, NJ next year. Our son has been diagnosed with High Functioning Asperger's and ADHD. He is 7 years old and we want to make sure wherever we move the schools have a good reputation for delivery of services for children with special needs. Our hope is to find a good public school. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

I too have a son, 14, with the same conditions. Although I live an hour south of Madison, I used to work in a day care center there. If I had to live in North Jersey, I'd live in Madison. Great town. I'd rather live in the crappiest hole in Madison than live in a nice house elsewhere. Quality people, given Drew with its theological program, and Farleigh Dickenson and the NJ Shakespeare Co. Public schools are excellent. It's expensive, but not at all snobby.
I'm still searching for a high school to meet my son's needs - the Asperger's component has only recently been realized/acknowledged.

Madison does not have a very good special education program and does the minimum for special needs kids. I'd look at Chatham instead. Also, I do know that Morristown has a good program for more severe autism (self contained elem program w/ ABA), but not sure what they do for high functioning children.

Default Clinton twp school district has a good reputation

for special needs, you could check them out at

Clinton Township School District (http://www.ctsd.k12.nj.us/clintontsd/site/default.asp - broken link)

to find out if they have what you need.
Good luck.
