autism & public school: how one mom is making it work.
Making the decision to integrate a child with autism into the public school system is something more and more parents are having to face. My husband and I decided to enrol our son, Max, into Junior Kindergarten last Fall. It was our belief that having our son participate in school from as early an age as possible would benefit him. There were many challenges -- especially in the first few months -- but it ended up being a positive experience for Max and those that had the opportunity to work with him.
