Q:

Where can I find an advocate for my special needs child?

I recently moved to Carteret, NJ. My 11 year old child has a speech impairment and severe multiple-disabilities. She has been diagnose with autism. I would like to get her to a school that specifically works with children with disabilities. Where do I begin my search?

Hi, Here are some autism advocacy organizations you might contact:

Autism Society of America

Autism Speaks
http://www.autismspeaks.org/

A New Jersey advocacy group serving individuals with autism and their families is New Horizons in Autism:
http://www.nhautism.org/

The National Center for Learning Disabilities also has information and resources your family may find helpful:

To locate local school districts and schools for your new residence, you can use SchoolFinder: http://www.education.com/schoolfinder/

I hope these resources help get you closer to finding the right school for your daughter.
