    My name is Elizabeth Maisonet, my son was diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome at the age of 6. He has been attending public school since Pre-k. He is now in 5th grade and i am struggling with the idea of him attending Middle School next year. I really want to put him in a private school or a school that specializes with children like mine. Please contact me with any information. My son is my world and i just want to make his better. Thank you for your time.
