      Hi,
      Welcome! my name is marilyn. I homeschool my 2 sons, 5 y.o. & 11 y.o. both are autism spectrum.  My older son went thru CCSD until beg. 2nd grade then we pulled him.  I'm sure your son will do much better at home.  Feel free to email me anytime to chat about hsing. My only advice is to just relax at first and let him find the love for learning that public school doesn't seem to foster in our kids.

      Hello,
      I have four children: My 3rd child is a 12 year-old young man diagnosed on the autism spectrum. (Verbal skills are low). My other two children (13 girl/8 boy) would benefit from sibling support groups and or activities. My oldest is a 23 years-old man and left the nest.

      My 12 year-old son started at Children's Special Clinic a lifetime ago. He was enrolled in CCSD's early childhood program. (KIDS)

      He's currently enrolled in a CCSD Middle school and came home with questionable realities with NO explanations.

      After much soul searching and battling the district to do "the right thing", we have come to understand our child does not belong in such an environment. We feel it would be best to educate our son at home.

      There are several reasons for this decision and the bottom line is: We want the best for our son. We are confident that CCSD can NOT provide an environment conducive to his well-being, education or safety. As we will be loosing the ABA home-program (provided via the CCSD) and we are beginning a new path; any advise or recommendations would be most welcome.

      Thank you,

      Hey Michelle, Rashan was on the approval list for my daughter insurance under Neurologist.  I planned on calling to find out what he does.  As you see Vegas

        Hey Michelle,

        Rashan was on the approval list for my daughter insurance under Neurologist.  I planned on calling to find out what he does.  As you see Vegas does not have very many good choices.  I am also going to see how much my insurance will cover if I go out of state.... shouldn't have to do that but will.

        Good luck

        Tina

        I had a bad experience with Dr. Halthore too. Actually I think I got his name from Lili Claire.

        I'm sorry I don't know of a Neurologist but am confused about something. So I had to ask. You mentioned a Raja, Roshan D.O. and after it put Child Neurology Specialists. But aren't D.O's different than Neurologists? Is he a D.O. or a Neurologist?

        Have you ever heard of Dr. Kinsora he does the same sort of testing Dr. Beasley Does. We were going to see him but since we got into Lili Claire they said we didn't need to because he does the same thing. Could be worth checking into if you already haven't.

I was fortunate though to get into Lily Clair and get a genetic diagnosis.  At the time I saw Beasley the price was $1200 cash and I was shocked.  It is amazing to me that the specialist that can help charge so much.

        > Now on to my issue,  I am looking for a good Neurologist. My daughter is 14 so a pediatric one would probably be what I need.  My insurance covers Neurology Specialist but I went to Sri Halthorn in 2001 and was totally mislead with the diagnosis.  So I do not want to go to them.  The only other one is RAJA, ROSHAN D.O.

        > Just an FYI on the school district. When I turned down the autism program to keep my youngest home they refused the speech & OT. After he turned 5 and we did the re-eval meeting they decided to let him have speech and OT. The district really pushes families to put the kids in the 3-5 yr old "Kids" program. They get bigger funding from the state for these programs if the child is enrolled. The funding goes down considerably after 5 so they're not so pushy after that and will generally give you the services.
