Finding the Right School

Operation Autism's Resource Directory provides a listing of public and private schools that serve each military base in the U.S., along with local autism support resources and Exceptional Family Member Program contact information.

SchoolQuest, a resource of the Military Child Education Coalition, provides meaningful facts, resources, and transition advice to help you find out about the area schools that serve your military community.'s Military Installation Guide provides a complete profile of each base, including school and special education information and various other resources for family members.

Finally,Public School ReviewSchool Matters,  School Data Direct are search engines that provide thorough school profiles, including average scores, classroom demographics, and parent reviews. They do not focus specifically on special education resources, so it is important to do further research to ensure that the school fits your child's needs.
