I am thinking of moving away from Cedar Rapids, IA., but am afraid that there are not as many opportunities elsewhere for my daughter who has Down Syndrome and also has to wear hearing aids. She will be attending high school next year and is in the moderate category: very sociable, good reader and speller for level 2, I believe it is. We even have a Transition Center here for after high school, if they attended the CR district schools. Should I wait until she's done with that, or is there a better place for her right now?
I am thinking of anywhere from the Bettendorf area to the Cedar Falls area mostly.
Thank you so much.

I know this isn't in the area you're looking at but I'd recommend the Grandwood school (Grandwood Campus (http://www.woodward-granger.k12.ia.us/website-grandwood/index.html - broken link)). It's near Des Moines and I have heard a lot of good things about it from a teacher there.

Lightbulb Any more recommendations?

I am thinking, actually, that it would be nice to know of any communities that you love for special needs adults also. Anywhere in the USA. What are your favorites?
Thanks!!
