Hi @A MyAutismTeam Member not sure if this will help but my daughter was just evaluated by our school district the beginning of the year, she is almost 5, and every person who evaluated her, and even the special education teacher that we met with, were all amazing.

I'm sure there are other good districts besides ours here in so cal. Best of luck! 😊💖
