We've had excellent support in the Baldwin school district. Has your son been officially classified?

We looked at Salem elementary school in Port Washington. Although our kid is very young and does not have dyslexia that we know of, we were very impressed by all of the services there for kids with special needs. Might be worth looking into...

Thanks!
Yes he has been classified, though his IEP has not been updated yet.
I have heard about the Port Washington schools as well.

Default Grandmother needs information

I am a grandmother seeking information for my daughter who currently resides in Manhattan and who has a 6 year old kindergarten daughter recently diagnosed with extreme dyslexia. She is trying to find a school district in Nassau County that provides tutoring and care which is included in the district's tax base. At this time she is facing costs of $5000 living in Manhattan with her child in catholic school, which provides no care at all. The parents are in the process of selling their east side co-op and purchasing a small home in northern nassau county. It would also make it expedient for me to travel to help out often, as I am a senior citizen living in Woodbury, NY in the extreme northeast area of Nassau County.

Port Washington school district provided excellent support for our autistic son. Very nice people and very supportive. Then we moved to Syosset school district. Syosset is all about 'academic excellence' and not very supportive of special needs kids. It's good for our high-achieving daughter, but not that good for our autistic son.
