looking for answer about an E.D.  program- Tri-Village

Schools  New Madison, Ohio Darke County

this question concerns an E.D. program at Tri-village local schools in New Madison, Ohio. ( Darke County )
 I am trying everything i can to help My Girlfriends    13 year old son Trevor  who has Asperger's  which is a form of Autism.
I am trying to find out if anyone has a child that has enrolled their child in the school's program that i believe is called " 13 program " .It deals with life skills more-so than the standard Curriculum. Does anyone know of the restrictions or qualifications to be accepted into the program that may help with forms of autism or have any ideas of what to expect from such a program.  He has issues with anger , frustration , focus, and some social anxiety. In the past prescription drugs have been used however the side effects have caused us to stop usage. He does see a therapist, M.R.D.D. , and a peer to peer group setting in his current school.

Lack of Money is a Major factor so we feel horrible that we cannot do more for him.

 We are also in the works of trying to help him using the the big brothers program.
he has a heart of gold however he has just not found his niche just yet.We are trying to get him into some sort of life skills program as well as day to day social interaction in a positive light while in a school setting. which hopefully this school program may be able to help.

any information about this program would be so greatly appreciated !

thanks to everyone in advance that may be able to shed some light on the subject
