My understanding is that the east coast states like Mass, NY and NJ are some of the top states for kids on the spectrum. I have an ASD kid and have an educational law attorney involved. I'm not impressed with Salem-Keizer's efforts with ASD kids.

There is the Austism school of Portland. I don't really know anything about it though. You can't really judge an entire state. You really need to look at individual school districts. A lot depends on the severity of the child. My kiddo is high functioning so she tends to get shafted.

I don't think there is any particular state help here...are you talking about if you qualify for medicaid?
