As soon as children receive an autism diagnosis, their parents grow concerned about what the future might look like for them. Will their child be able to function independently within the community? Will he/ she be recognized for his/her talents or overshadowed by a label? Will he/she ever be able to live on his/her own?
This leads many parents on a search for the “perfect” school for their child. Some go for the traditional public-school setting, hoping the inclusive classroom set-up will allow for more interaction with neurotypical students, along with federally mandated special education accommodations. Some choose smaller private schools, hoping that, with lower numbers, their children will receive more one-on-one attention.
