My son Aidan was recently diagnoses with PPD-NOS. I was told by the intensive intervention program to start the enrollment process for public school. The problem is I am not going to stay where I currently live because the special education is not to my standards. I am looking to move by September 1st. I already contacted the public school for the area where I live now but should I call the school system that I want to live? Will they even start the process even thought I am not a resident yet? Has anyone else ran in to this dilema? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

I'm not sure they will start the process without you living there. However, it wouldn't be a bad idea to contact them and get information on the special education services. Explain your situation and they'll probably be of more assistance.

i agree, call the school disctrict, find out info from them and especially where they will place him. I know our school district has done placements as late as the last week of August.

Thanks. I did call the school system and unfortunately I do have to wait until I move there. They said that if I get the lease In August they can start the process then. I hate waiting though.

Yeah, I know what you mean, but in the mean time, make sure you have all of Aidan's records ready to transfer to the new school system so that there is no delay in them getting the information they need. That will hopefully speed the process up.

Oh and another thought. Does there special ed class usually fill up quickly, or will there be places available. You definately want to know that because if their program fills up and they don't have enough students to open a second class, he may have to be placed at a different program.
