My husband is being transferred to Ft. Bragg this summer or fall. We have a 3 1/2 year old son who is developmentally delayed (possibly Autistic). I was wondering if anyone could tell me about the special ed. programs in the schools. Which schools are the best for special ed.? We are looking at living in the Jack Britt schools (I see that this is the best area for schools in Fayetteville) area in Fayetteville or in Pinehurst. Does anyone have any suggestions? Even though we are military, we prefer to live in a more civilian neighborhood so my kids can have a little more stability (less people moving in and out). We may end up retiring there and I would like the kids in the neighborhood to be around longer than 2 or 3 years, if you know what I mean.
I would appreciate any info. you could give me. Please email me at MGR25@aol.com.
thanks in advance,

I really don't know much about the special education services in the Fayetteville area. It would help to know about what type of service you are seeking. Fayetteville has a high rate of people moving in and out due to the military. However, many people get out and stay here due to the relatively low cost of living. I read some statistics a few years back that said 1/3 of the city (or was it county?)population moved in and out within 5 years. Perhaps someone on this board will have information about the Pinehurst area for you. Good luck with your move. Here is a link for a local organization that might be able to assist you http://www.ccpfc.org/ as well as one for UNC that has a program in Fayetteville http://www.teacch.com/regionalcenters/fayetteville/welcome.html (broken link)

My parents retired in Fayetteville in the late 80's - they've been very active in the community, and have actively supported the downtown revitalization, as well as the Cape Fear Regional Theater. Despite it being a military town, and therefor somewhat transient, there is a strong community of people who are not military as well, so you should be able to find what you're looking for.

I would check Cumberland County schools
and find out who the contact person would be for special ed services. They can probably help you find services for your son before he enters kindergarten as well.
Good luck!

You mentioned the Jack Britt school district as being the best. Where did you get that info? I was just wondering as I am thinking of moving to Fayetteville this summer.
