Need a school in Deltona for my 9 yr old non-speaking son with autism

I'm moving to Deltona and I need to find a school for my son. He goes to an ABA school with a one-on-one aid and I am hoping to find something similar in Deltona but I'm open to a public school or other type of private school if there are any that are able to meet his needs.
Thank you for your help :-)

Why does my kid cry every time I try to make him do something?

I have been working on receptive language goals with my 2 year old and I have successfully taught him sign language for "more, please, open, and all done" he echoes those words most of the time after I say them but sometimes when I say "want more?" He just cries instead even though he knows he has to say "more." I don't give into his crying though. Since he has learned these first few words and a few object labels he has been throwing a lot more fits… read more

Use what he seems to respond to the best. If he's not signing, they should just move on to pecs and a speech device. Those things work better because as they see the… read more

Verbal to nonverbal

At times, my five year old Aspie who is verbal, regresses and becomes non verbal. Does anyone else's child regress like this at times? She'll grunt and begin pointing. Like at her sister or at something she might want. Its frustrating because she is verbal at least 95% of the time.

Flying + recommended headphones

We're about to tackle flying with our daughter for the first time since she was 1yo. I'm scared! It's only an hour flight and an iPad will keep her distracted, but woe to those around her when it has to be turned off or taken away (though her ABA therapist is working on fading this reaction). We wanted to practice having her use headphones. She tolerates the ones that come with her ILS equipment but they don't have a normal input. Anyone have a brand they like that their… read more

What can we do if my kid does not want to wear any clothes when going to sleep?

My kid wants to take all her clothes out when going to bed every night and does not seem to mind if she pees overnight. I've been doing all the same routines as always and up until now she's been a great sleeper, going through the drills of bathing, reading our story, praying and going to bed. Lately i've been having to stay with her until she is asleep, otherwise she takes her PJs out. We tried full body pajamas, reversing the zipper… read more
