  • I have an Autistic child as well, and from you're saying, it sounds like your child can not be mainstreamed. I don't know where you live, but in Texas, where I am, we have ABA, which I'm sure you know about. Has he had it? Did it help? Also, his developmental pediatrician should be able to give a recommendation for the private schooling. I home school my kids, so I don't have the issues you have, and one of the reasons I do so is because of the things you just brought up. It's just much easier to teach them myself, and avoid the drama. But where I live, it's also easy for me to get services I need.
