I have two children, one is severely apraxic (severe speech delay) and ASD (moderate to low function) but very bright and learns to read and write, and is very calm and mild, easy to organize and to concentrate, but he needs a lot of care in terms of a HEAVY 20 hr/week ABA program and a lot of speech (5 hours per week.

DO you think I can find anything like this, with a good dose of inclusion, as he has no behaviors, in the Orlando area.

I will be working in Baldwin Park area, so would prefer a good public school close to there.

I am from the Fairfield Countty area, supposedly a wealthy area in, CT where our services re "lousy"! Really bad! but we lived in NY where the services were EXCELLENT, so I am concerned about our move to FL/Orlando area, and appreciate any guidance to find a good ABA public school!

There is a place called Threshold Center for Autism on Goldenrod in Winter Park. Link is below for reviews. Not sure if it's a public school per se, but they might be able to point you in the right direction.
