My husband and I and our kids are relocating to Louisville. Our 3.5 year old is autistic and is in a developmental preschool right now where we live. Does Louisville have one?

Can anyone direct me to more resources for autism help in the area?

Thank you.

Yes, Louisville does have some developmental pre-schools. I would contact JCPS Early Childhood program. They do developmental tests for 3 & 4 yr old children, then assist in pre-school placement.
