My husband is in the military, and we are relocating out of ND to another place for services for my 4 y/o son, who has moderate to high functioning autism. We have been to Omaha, my son is already diagnosed. We would like to know what services for special needs children there are? What are the waiting lists like? Are there ABA therapists? And what the best school districts are? This city was on the top of the list, but several parents I have met online have really painted a negative picture, so I would like to see if there is anyone with positive information here.

I am not familiar with them but might want to check out the "Autism Center of Nebraska" or the "Nebraska
Autism Spectrum Disorders Network
(http://www.nde.state.ne.us/autism/ - broken link)
"

With all of the medical research and university hospital resources in Omaha I can't imagine there is not tremendous support for disabilities such as autism - but, I may be wrong, I have no direct experience with it.

Hello, I am a military spouse whose daughter was just diagnosed with HF Autism. We are begining the whole process of EFMP, but waswondering if you were able to relocate b/c of inadequte services in ND or if it was just your time for orders in general? We are currently stationed at Scott AFB, Il (20 miles St Louis) and there is virtually nothing here for Children with Autism including St Louis area (crazy I know, but true) Just trying to get an idea of how hard it will be to get a reassignment for the benefit of our child. Andrews AFB (Baltimore MD)seems to have a great deal of support groups plus the Kennedy-Kreiger school ... not sure of any of this will be a possibily though. Any help from anyone on the subject matter will be great We are in the begining phase of this. Thanks Tara

My youngest son was diagnosed with HFA in 2006 (at age 3&1/2). He was actually diagnosed by our school district's (Millard) preschool program, and placed in a special preschool class immediately. They have been very supportive, and he has made great improvements. He will enter a structured Kindergarten class next year (on time!) and will be mainstreamed as much as possible. The teachers have been great and are always willing to comply with my dietary requests for him (He's on the GFCF diet with additional soy restriction). Its pretty great.....now the downside, I have had trouble finding simple things like, support group meetings and other services outside of the services that my school district provides. We don't do separate ABA therapy outside of school, so I'm not sure what services are available. I hope this has helped, and good luck with everything.

I am bumping this because I am interested on what ABA services there in Omaha and surrounding areas; maybe these folks are still lurkers on the forum and can share what they have found.

I need to Know if there are any private schools for autism in Omaha Nebraska. I know they started one in Lincoln in 2012 through a non-profit but don't know if it's complete yet. My son is supposed to Be starting kindergarten bext year but mainstreaming is not a solution for children with autism.

Hello all...looking again for specific info on good schools in Omaha/Bellevue area for child with PDD-NOS ...lost faith and hope in the OPS system after numerous horrors experienced at Boyd Elementary... just hoping to get insight from parents with children with verbal (expressive) language delays etc.
