I am currently from IA. Wanting to move to NC. I have a daughter with Down Syndrome she has currently been enrolled in public school and attends gen. ed. class the majority of the day. Only pulled out an hour, for extra help in reading and math. I am looking for a location that's school places special ed students with their peers in regular classroom to learn and understands the importance of this! Anyone who can give me any info on how and what schools handle this the best would be greatly appreciated!! I have been looking in the Salisbury/Gastonia/or smaller community around the Charlotte area. Thanks again for your input!!

We lived in Cumberland county (Fayetteville, about 2-3 hrs east of Gastonia), and they had no issues mainstreaming my daughter, who has multiple special needs. We moved to Union County, on the other side of Charlotte, from Gastonia, and there is really not a chance, aside from a lawsuit, of getting my daughter back in the mainstream. Schools are run, mostly, by county here so hopefully someone here will know more about Gaston County and maybe Iredell county as well.
Good luck!

Sorry I can't help but you might want to post on the Charlotte board too. Not everyone scans the whole NC section. I am sure you will get some replies there.

Good luck in your search.

I suggest starting your own thread in the Charlotte sub-forum and use a very specific title. Your question will get lost in the general NC forum.

However it would help to know why you have chosen to move to Charlotte. Is there a job already lined up? Which part of the Charlotte area?
