MA meaning Massachusetts?
In my school district (in Maryland), we have certain schools that house the "autism program" as this program is not offered in all schools. Each program, from school-to-school, is identical and is typically for students who have not been successful with their typical peers. Also, each school has supports in place (again identical from school-to-school) to help assist these individuals with day-to-day academics, social interactions, organization and so on.
Are you looking for a school with specialized support/programming or just a school in general? Are the public schools in your area that different from one another?
You may want to check with your local autism support group and ask the parents for some input.
Blurb from your state chapter:
Support parents and professionals who expressed a need for assistance finding information and support about autism, pervasive developmental disorder (PDD), and Asperger’s Disorder. It is directed by a Parent Advisory Policy Committee comprised of parents of children with autism/PDD. ASC is a program of the North Shore ARC with funding from the Massachusetts Department of Mental Retardation.
