Hello! I'm a newbie here so please bear with me! We are looking into moving to Australia in the near future for the better education system and for the weather (we live in Ireland!). We have a lad with asperger's and dyslexia. I have found a website which is a directory of schools in australia and an 'Acara' website which lists schools in the different areas. What I would like to know is - are there forums anywhere which lists parents' recommendations of different schools in different states? I'd love to get a shortlist of recommended mainstream schools that have a fantastic reputation for teaching kids with mild autism and mild learning difficulties. If anyone has any ideas I'd really appreciate it if you could let me know, many thanks! HC
