Hello my husband is awaiting a job offer from Nike. We currently live in Bellingham Wa. We have two boys with autism. One will be in 6th grade in the fall. He is currently in a regular ed classroom and a full time one on one aide. My 3rd grader is in a special ed classroom but has an aide for 3 hours daily in an regular ed classroom. I'm wondering what schools have the best services for my boys. Any advice is appreciated. I like N or NE Portland. I have heard Milwaukie schools are good.

Funny coincidence, i have 2 autistic children in Portland Public School System and am thinking of moving to Bellingham. Maybe we could help each other.
In Portland school budgets have been drastically cut and almost all special ed kids are in mainstream schools special classroom. These teachers know very little about autism. However specialists will work with the teachers to provide a customised education plan for your child. The special ed schools have very small student body and only the most severely disabled will be asigned to them, and even then they will need a doctors referral.
The good news is that the transition programs for helping less disabled children find work and fit into the comunity are excellent.
What can you tell me about autism services in Bellingham?
Ted.

I have two boys with autism. My older son has been in a regular ed class with a one on one aid in Silver Beach Elementary since Kindergarten. It is an amazing school. My younger son has been in a Life Skills class and is at a different school. You can get good services here if you push for them. There is also a great autism summer camp F.A.C.E.S Northwest. It is expensive but an awesome program that has helped my boys immensely. Feel free to private message me with any questions.
