I wonder how many people responding actually know somebody with special needs who came up through one of these school districts?

I have known a lot.

I always see the same people recommending the same areas and districts without a thought towards what it would actually be like for the special needs kid in these districts.

I can't comment on other districts but I will say that Upper Darby is excellent for a kid with special needs, and Aronomink is nothing like the other schools in the district. I'd put it against damn near any elementary school in the area.

What I do know is that in Upper Darby and Ridley, your kid could play sports. Baseball, basketball, bowling, and others. I've seen kids in wheelchairs who can't move their arms play baseball. He or she could also land a job through the local programs set up for special needs people. If that sounds like something you'd want for your kid, then choose Upper Darby.
