My boyfriend and I are trying to find schools/residential services for his almost 17 year old son...we don't have much time before he is 18.   We only found out about the autism when he was 15 almost 16 years old...he was previously diagnosed with a genetic disorder Noonan's Syndrome.   We are willing to move to find him what he needs.   We found what we think is a really good program in Princeton, New Jersey called Eden and would like to know if anyone has any info about them good or bad.   Or knows of any other schools that he could possibly go to.   Love to hear anything you have to help ~ Passionate Peace ~ Star

My children are still young so I can't offer any help. I hope you can find what you are looking for. HUGS

His son can attend school until age 21 under current law. You can read more about it at http://www.wrightslaw.com/. I also recommend http://www.autism-society.org/, http://www.easterseals.org/, http://www.thearc.org/, and http://www.specialolympics.org/.
