I am currently living in Florida. We are thinking of relocating to PA next year. We will need to be able to commute to philly for work. I am willing to commute as much as 45 mins. Can someone recommend a good area to look at that has a good school system for children with autism.
Areas we were thinking of looking were in Bucks county and Harrisburg?

Until we buy a home we will be renting. What does a nice two bedroom townhome cost? Here in fl it can cost anywhere from 1050-1300, is it about the same there?

Harrisburg is not within 45 minutes of Philly by car or train. And Bucks County barely is either by train. Its definitely further than that by car. By train, you can just get to a few of the lower bucks county towns in 45 minutes.

Please check out the following school in the Newtown Square area.

The TALK Institute and School, formerly the Magnolia School, is the nation's most progressive center for the education of children with autism and language disorders outside Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. As teachers, therapists and researchers we are at the forefront of a new, more accurate and person-centered understanding of autism -- one that presents autism as a sensory-based movement disorder profoundly affecting language, social interaction and praxis.

TALK Institute and School
395 Bishop Hollow Road
Newtown Square, PA 19073

Does anyone else have any experiences with this school, Talk Institute? I am moving to Bucks Co with my 4 yr old son who has high functioning autism. Is it expensive? Is there financial assistance with the tuition? Do they use ABA?
