Any Air Force families have base recommendations?

We just got a diagnosis and will need to PCS to a base that can accommodate my sons needs. Any families have advice on good/bad bases? I know the list of EFMP bases but I want to know who likes what service they're getting from therapists/schools and the base itself. I can't seem to find up-to-date things to read.

However, I am hoping to stick to the north area such as NorthGlenn, Westminster, Broomfield, Highland, etc - which I believe most are the Adams County Five Star district.
