My son was diagnosed with high function PDD NOS. He is 3 years old. I now live in Israel and we are planning to come to Canada (Toronto) in the next half a year. In Israel we have a kindergarten with maximum 8 children and a lot of special help like speech therapist etc. The whole staff (4 adults for 8 children) are specialist in PDD. They know how to work with these children and make them progress so that finally they will need a minimum help at school. Can someone tell me what kind of treatment and therapy children with such diagnosis get in Canada. Do you have this kind of kindergartens? Can you suggest me what to do and how to act. Whom should I talk to? If he enters this special program does it mean that he can't go to regular school or he will have reevaluation?
Thank you a lot in advance
