,
I will be moving to Cherry Hill area soon, and I will be working in Center City Philly, I am looking for an apartment in a good school district that has an excellent autism program. I have a 7-year-old with mid-functioning autism. Anyone has the first-hand experience on a public elementary school in the cherry hill school district with great autism program; any comments advice will be much appreciated! Thanks.

Sorry no one was able to help. Im in north jersey & my kids are on the spectrum. Ive had good services here in Union Twp. Ive heard good things about services in Cherry Hill but everybody situation & services is different. One district could be great for me & terrible for you. Get involved with the school special education parent group, sometimes called sepag. Every town has a different acronym for their parent group. Be your child's biggest advocate & do no be afraid to speak up & ask questions. You can always dm me if you have questions about iep stuff. hth

I work in the before and afterschool childcare at one of the elementry schools, one that has a significant number of students on the spectrum. The school has two teachers that have self-contained classrooms. Kindergarten-2nd and 3rd-5th. The teachers are extremely dedicated and they each have educational assistants in the classrooms. I do not have firsthand knowledge of how the classes are taught, just the basics.

Off the top of my head, Johnson and Cooper Elementary have self-contained classrooms.

Y.A.L.E. school Cherry Hill campus seems quality if your child is extreme if you are willing to do private.

I used to sub in voorhees schools. They were excellent with kids with special needs. For example i subbed for a aide whose job it was to attend to an autistic child. I saw kids with down symdrom who were doing great. This was my experience but i would say thst you child will get the same great care in the cherry hill,school district. The area is one of the nicests with a lot of wealthy people paying a lot of taxes. They would not take anything less than the best

The orther district i am familiar with is haddonfield. Again, a lot of well off people. I think cherry hill haddonfield or voorhees (in certain schools) would be great. I give that caveat because the schools im thinking of are in very nice areas not in the are where all of the apartments are. I subbed at those schools too but did not see any special needs kids. (Somerdale rd school)
