A Good School

My son has SOD and has been attending the district public school that was recommended by early intervention when he was 3 yrs old. My son is now 4 yrs old and started his second year of pre-school in the same program. This program is not tailored for the visually impaired but is directed for the general special education children. I'm not sure if this program is the right one for my child although they seem to be a terrific team of teachers, they are not TVI certified (teacher for the visually impaired). I feel Connor would benefit from a school like St. Josephs school for the blind but it a private school out of district and not sure if the current school district would agree and pay for it. Does anyone have experience with this particular situation, that can give me advice on how i can approach this??

Generally, if you want your child to be in a specialized school, you need to pay for it, unless your child qualifies for disability assistance through the government.

A public school district is not going to pick up the cost for you to have your kid in a private school. They are providing resources at the public school level.
