Hi, I am trying to decide on where to move so my daughter can have the best services and education she can receive from the public school system. I currently live in Bristol Township and I am not too happy with the results and the services they are giving my child. I have been trying to look online to see which schools have the best programs but keeps showing me private schools. I am thinking of either Pennsbury school district or Bensalem? Does anybody have any children with Autism currently going or just did go to any school in these districts to help me decide because I would like to do it soon. Anyone who can help will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

You need to talk to the autism community directly...try the Tommy Foundation in Lancaster area, or even the Harrisburg Autism Society.

No need to talk to outside organizations located a couple of hours away.

I notice you are staying within Bucks County with your search, so you need to contact the Bucks County Intermediate Unit. They are the main interface for providing services for your child and that would be the case at your current school or if you moved to Bensalem or Pennsbury. I'm guessing your school in Bristol does a poor job with making use of the services available. Contact the Intermediate Unit to find out how you can get your child better services now and when you move.

For what it's worth, Bucks County has an excellent Intermediate Unit. So does Montgomery County, both very accommodating to student needs.

The one and only place they offered for my son is Head start program in Levittown.When i asked them to tell me other possible options, the answer was THATS THE ONLY ONE WE HAVE. i am so desperate, my son was only reason for us to move to Bucks County.

Post The Arc

The Arc (of respective county) would have good information for this as well.

Cyber school tends to work well with many students with a disability, especially if they are on the spectrum.
