I don't really know even how to start this post.... I've been living outside of US for the past several years. My son, who turned 3 in September, has been diagnosed this August. I am planning right now a move back to Pennsylvania, where I grew up and where my parents and most of my family live. The main reason is that I want my son to have grandpa and grandma in his everyday life. They are very warm, loving, and giving people, and they get through to him. I want my son to get the maximum intervention at this crucial age.
He is now in specialized daycare and also works with an SLP at home twice a week. There are also some pension and disability money and discounts on specialists.
Where do I start with all that in US? Are there kinder-gardens that are covered by some government plan? Are there private kinder-gardens for kids on the spectrum? Is there money allotted and from which agencies? How are SLP, motor skills and other specialists covered? Is there a page (or pages) that has all the relevant links and information that I should look at?
I will appreciate any comment and any information.
