I am thinking about moving out of Gwinnett county ( Buford) to Forsyth county Suwanee or north Fulton. I currently have rising first grader in private school. I just realized that my three year old son might be on the autism spectrum. I do believe that he will be mainstreamed after some training and therapy. I am debating between the followings
Olde Atlanta club for johns creek elementary ( south Forsyth )
Shakerag elementary Fulton
Medlock elementary

I need a school that can accommodate autistic child and super achieving child ( daughter ) at the same time. I work in Duluth so commute would be a factor as well. Thank you.

Perhaps you should check out this book:
Misdiagnosis and dual diagnosis of gifted children « SENG

Of course if the child is truly on the spectrum early intervention is crucial.

You need to have a professional diagnosis in order to get the appropriate services. Although you might think "mainstreaming" is appropriate, the determination is best made by a team consisting of parents, teachers and other specialists. Now is the time to get the therapy and help your child.

Try the Lionheart School in Alpharetta. They recently moved into a bigger facility. They do awesome work.

Porter Academy in Roswell may be a good fit.
