Much of what is discussed comes from the west coast. I live in VA and have a 3 and a half yr old grandson with autism. Any services have to be privately found and paid for. The school
system won't allow the IEP to have Autism Spectrum Disorder on it till the child reaches 7. We are arranging for some services through Autism Outreach here in Northern VA. My grandson attend a public preschhol with non-catagorically disable dchildre, with a special ed techer and 2 aides. The program is not helping him in any specific ways except that he enjoys the interaction of his peers. WE are looking for some advice on toilet training that we would be able to do ourselves. My husband and I, both retired at=re a constant support for our daughte and son in law, who ave 2 other little boys.
