My daughter will be 3 the end of March. In our state the services she receives through the Early On Program end abruptly on the day she turns 3. In our area there is not a lot of options available to children with ASD. The recommendations by the Early On program are for a preschool setting geared toward children with disabilities. I have toured this particular classroom and while I found the staff wonderful and I know my daughter would be in good hands I am not sure if it is the right setting for her. In this classroom they deal with children with many different diabilities ranging from severe mental retardation, CP, major behavior issues and extreme physical handicap. Most of the children in that classroom are below my daughters social and even intellectual development. Since my daughter has a mild form of ASD (high functioning) would it not be a disadvantage to place her in a classroom where she could be picking up social development from children who are more impaired than she is? Shouldn't she be placed in a setting where most of the children are above her level so she can learn from their example? Any advice from parents who have been at this crossroads and made decisions would be appreciated.
