What are the best communities/cities around the US for raising a child with Down Syndrome?

My son, August was born in May and has Down Syndrome. He has two older brothers, ages 2 and 4. We have considered relocating in the past and I was wondering if anyone knew of specific cities in the U.S. that have a lot to offer for children with Down Syndrome?

We moved from St. Pete,Florida to Murfreesboro, N almost 4 yrs ago. For us it was the best thing we could of ever done. Everyone here is so much nicer and they accept Zek for who he is. In Florida he would say Hi and people would turn the other way. Here people hug him and talk to him. Good luck on making such a hard decision about relocating. For us it was an easy decision and once the money was available we took the chance.

We're in RI, and they have similar services to what Morgan mentioned in AZ. I know most school systems here involve kids with DS in everything that the "regular" kids hae available. We also have the Down Syndrome Society of RI which is great if you need help with finding services and other assistance. There are also alot of places here to chose from for early intervention services, and we're close to the best hospitals in the country with Boston just up the road :)
