Hi,
We are a family moving from PA to the Middlesex county MA area. We are looking at a good school with excellent services for Autism. I need a school that is challaging as well as both my children are exceptional in school. My youngest is high functioning Pdd-nos. This is a big transition for us. We are excited about the move. However we are in need of connecting with services and maybe a support group in the area for suggestions and help. Towns that we like are Acton,Littleton,Westford. We really would like something near a train so my husband can commute to Cambridge by rail. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Given the areas that you mention- a co-worker of mine has a severely autistic daughter, and lives and has raised his kids in Sudbury. He says the services and schools and so forth there are top-notch for her and for his ADD kid. (Both are in college now, living at home with him in Sudbury).
Sudbury is a lovely community, more rural than Acton, nearby.
Of course, as a resident, I heartily love Littleton, but know nothing about school/autism services, etc. Good luck. It's a great part of the Boston metro area.

Acton (where I live), Concord, Sudbury... all very good schools with excellent special education programs. Acton and Concord both have commuter rail stations... not sure about Sudbury.

Sudbury doesn't have commter rail. I forgot about that part- was just passing on about co-worker who said the autism services were great there.
Of course, Acton and Concord are marvelous places to live, in a hearbeat.
