With the advice of Stella's teacher, therapists, and special ed coordinator, we have decided to request a transfer to a different system. Stella will be going to a school in District 75, not a place but rather a type of school, focused specifically on kids with special needs, located throughout the five boroughs of NYC.
Last week we got word of a seat available in a school in a rather far-away part of Queens. Bob and I visited it and were very impressed. There are a few things to work out, but it looks as if Stella will be starting there within a week or two!
