Hi, I'm new to the forum and this is my first post.
We are moving out to Adelaide in the relatively near future. I'm going to be working in Golden Grove so we were were thinking of settling somewhere in east/northeast Adelaide. This will be dictated by schools essentially.
My 3 year old daughter is autistic (she is an Australian citizen, so all the immigration stuff is already looked into and she is entitled to live in Australia).
We are very keen to try to find out some information about what the support is like for ASD kids in schools in Adelaide. Are there any schools/pre-schools in particular which people have had good experiences with? We are very keen to have her (at least eventually) attend a mainstream school with the support of a shadow initially. Does anybody on here have any experience of this? We are doing a home based behavioural program here in the UK (ABA) and will continue this in Adelaide. Ideally we would like to use one of our tutors as a shadow when she gets into the school setting.
Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. This whole issue is our greatest anxiety regarding the move.
Thanks in advance,
