Possibly moving to the area from NC and interested in eastern side of Charlottesville or along 64E. Husband's job will be split between CVille and west side of Richmond. We have 3 children under 5 yrs old. Our oldest will be starting Kindergarten in the fall and has IEPs for mild cognitive delays. Our house hunting will focus on:

*low 300s range
*great school district, especially w/ regards to special ed resources
*family friendly neighborhood

I've tried researching subdivisions, but the rural areas get pretty confusing. Looks like Lake Monticello and Steger Creek are a couple of options. We're also very interested in building, since we'd like to stay put for a long, long time. We previously lived in the Valley and know that the CVille area is what we want to call home for our children.

Any input on schools, real estate, child-friendly areas, etc are appreciated.

Thanks!

Lake Monticello is in Fluvanna County, which would put you in that county's schools. I don't know anything about them beyond what's on their website, but here's the page that details Special Education services. I'd suggest contacting the Director of Student Services and asking about what's available.

Best of luck in your search!

My gut feeling is that Albemarle County would offer the best special ed resources. You can check out greatschools.net (I think it's a .net) and check for reviews there. There may also be forums aimed at children with special educational needs.

Since Richmond is a larger city, the SPED resources there -- or in one of the counties around Richmond (Henrico, Goochland) -- might even be better than Albemarle County. Again, I don't know anything about them, but it's worth investigating if you don't mind living that far east.
