Hi,
My family and I are moving to Boston next summer and my oldest child has high-functioning autism. I will be working in Chelsea, so we are looking at areas around there where we could live. I am looking for a school district which will have the best services for him. Basically what he needs is possibly a para, but definitely ABA therapy and small group. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Are you looking to buy or rent? What's your housing budget? Do you prefer urban, suburban, or rural?

Commuting to Chelsea, you probably want to look at Lynnfield, Swampscott & Marblehead.

Wakefield and Melrose are other good options.

Also Nahant has a small elementary school and uses swampscott for middle/high school.

Middleton, Topsfield, Wenham, and Boxford could be options if you want a more rural feel. Commute would be a little longer though.

Not really sure about special education services though.
