Hello one and all! My husband and I are planning on moving from Central Maryland to Venice around the time our twins graduate HS in 2023. One of my twins is Autistic. I am trying to start the research on what I need to do for post secondary programs.

Is there anyone that can provide me with steps to get into the system? Would I contact Sarasota County School district first? If so, what department and how far in advance do I do this from our moving timeframe? Is there a site to look at the post secondary programs ahead of time?

We are looking at the 34285 zip code area ( specifically on the island). I appreciate any and all info. While this aspect of our move is important, our quality of life overall is a vital factor and after spending some time down there, that seems like a place where our son would love to be. Where we are now, that is not the case.

Thank you kindly

If your son is high functioning he can apply to college like any other student - I know you have to be a resident of Florida for at least one year to qualify for in-state tuition. I would contact Sarasota County to find out if they can help you more. Services for autism are very bad in Florida - I am sure Maryland is much better.
