They don't work well with autistic children who are on ieps. My child has rights for a great education. Children aren't cookie cutters everyone learns differently. I'm highly disappointed with this school and we have not been here long. And when my child comes home from school and says he's teacher hurts, his feelings is sad. Not professional if they are taking it out on my child for me, fighting for my son to have a great education for him to be successful.
