I will try to keep my explanation brief.
I am looking for school information for York and Adams counties, specifically how autism is supported.

We are a military family(my husband will be transferring to Baltimore with the Navy). We have two daughters, age 14 and 11. My 14 year old daughter has been diagnosed with Aspergers & ADHD. She has attended private school since grade 5. Currently she is mainstreamed for the majority of her classes but has support through the Resource Room. Although she is chronologically 14, emotionally she is probably around 10.
I do not want her to be in the secluded classroom but she does need supports. School size is important.
Has anyone had experiences(good or bad) within these counties in the public sector? Are there schools that go above and beyond? Any to stay away from? Any with specific Aspergers programs?
We have the choice to live in PA or MD, we are leaning toward PA because of family support as well as ability of wrap around services.
I have looked on the GreatSchools website but that doesn't offer much assistance giving perspective on special education services.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Contact the Lincoln Intermediate Unit (LIU 12) for your answers. The IU oversees the special education services for students of all spectrums and capabilities. They service Adams, Franklin and York county. Their education programs are available at a learning center and within certain school districts. They would be the best place to start with recommending good school districts for classes/resources that would best suit your daughter's educational needs.The website is www.IU.12org

I just retired from a school district that has an excellent Learning Support program and 2 LIU classrooms at the high school level. Most of the students were integrated into the regular school day, and would have their support or study periods with the resource room or learning center teachers. This high school has a small class/pupil/teacher ratio and consistently rates as the top in the county. If you would like more information, please PM me and I'll be glad to provide more details.
