Hi - your child's school district has a legal obligation to provide appropriate school programs including therapy. I would rec'd contacting the special ed director in your district and getting your child intaked for school, therapies, etc. If your school district does not have appropriate programs, they have the obligation to find a school in your area that does and pay for an out of placement program. But hopefully they will have something good right in your own district. Transportation is also included.

As Mira11 stated, in the United States, schools are required to help your child and provide any services necessary for success.
I do not know if this is the case in your region. Perhaps the medical doctors that diagnosed your son can point you in the right direction.
If you have any social services, health departments, or service departments for women & children, perhaps you can seek information there.

God Bless! I hope you find what your son needs & deserves.
