We are moving from Maine to FL in a matter of months. I have twin boys who are currently in a special needs preschool (one is autistic, one is developmentally delayed with a severe speech delay).

I have heard very little info on either county for ESE/special ed services. What I have heard is that Pasco County fails in comparison to HB. This was from one person.

They are 4 years old and will have another year in preK due to their December birthday.

Any and all input will be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

I am a Pre-K special education teacher in Pasco County and I worked previously in Hillsborough County. In Hillsborough county there program is call the Early Exceptional Learning Program (EELP) and it is a wonderful program. They have lots of classrooms all over the district. In Pasco county the program is just as lovely however, they have fewer classroom. The programs are very similar. They use the same curriculum and the procedures are very similar. It really depends on what school your child goes to, in either county. If you have any questions feel free to let me know.

Thank you so much for replying! I appreciate it very much. We have made an offer on a house in Wesley Chapel and hope to have the kids start there at the beginning of the new school year in August. Do you know if the boys will be at the same school even if they have differing diagnoses and therefore, different needs/therapies, etc.? And what hours do they go to school? And by chance, do you know of any good preschools in the area for non-special needs children? My daughter is 3 and she is in preschool here and I'd like to have her in school there too. Thank you so much! This helps me a lot!
