Hi there,

I was curious as to which State you are or have relocated to? They are so different, and I have lived in a few.
Although my own child had IEPs and regular evaluations from an early age, when I went overseas for a while, and then returned (to a new state) I have had nothing but problems, and my child has been through hell in the education system here! He still does not have an official IEP in place, and it has been almost 2 years now. This is Pennsylvania where I'm having all of these problems, and I have come to learn that the problems I'm experiencing are rife in this state. I plan to move back to Florida at the end of the school year. But I want to go back with the right IEP that is current, with the correct interventions so as not to risk problems like this again. Although I did have a current Statement of Special Needs when I came to PA, and recent evaluations.
You have already been recommended school find on here, and this may be very helpful, but if I had believed the information available on the school my child is at, I would have assumed there would be no problem. However, I didn't know about school find at the time!
I have provided a link to city-data, it is very detailed and informational. Here you can get direct information from those who live in any area you are considering, and there is a section just for schools also! I think it's best to get the information you need directly from those who are familiar with the info you seek in the area you seek it, so as an extra resource, I feel it's invaluable to have at your fingertips.

Good luck with it all
