What curriculum does California that best helps students with autism?
I have now moved to another county in So. Cal. My new district seems to be slightly more knowledgeable on the subject of autism, but only have the general ed. or severe handicap placements. To their credit, however, the SH class does work on some functional skills and is significantly better than what I saw at the old district. However, no grade level academics are even attempted in the class.
My son needs a blended program. Some general ed., with knowledgeable support, and some pull-out to the functional skills program. Is this pigeon-hole method unique to California due to the tiny amount we spend on education? Or does this go on nation-wide?
