My son has high functioning Autism (Aspergers Syndrome) and this is best school in the area that can address his needs and provide him with the supoort, education and encouragement that he needs. The regular public school that he had attended before White Oak couldn't and wouldn't provide him with what he needed and I am very thankful for White Oak and the services they provide. The staff and administration and wonderful and have a strong dedication toward their students! There should be more schools like this with the increased diagnosis of Autism and other special needs that children have.
