Preschools in Long Island NY

Preschools in Long Island NY

If you could live anywhere in Long Island for a preschool for a newly diagnosed 3 yr old autistic child where would you go (level 2; she is verbal, has a lot of social anxiety, SPD, separation anxiety and self-regulation is tough)?

Does anyone out there know of a Long Island preschool (special needs or otherwise) that uses the dloortime/DIR model or a mix of floortime/ABA? Does that exist?

Many thanks, we are new here and relocating to NY soon from Lima Peru.
