DH is seriously considering a relocation to London at the beginning of 2012. I'm beyond excited!
I've been researching areas to do the house-hunting, and was recommended Richmond, St Albans and Royal Tunbridge Wells (based on train lines to where DH's office will be). However, in my searches on Education Otherwise, I discovered a HS group for ASD/Asperger kids in the Kent/Medway area. DD (almost 9) has been diagnosed with SPD while she hasn't yet been evaluated for Asperger's, we've been given hints from the OT and other educational professionals that very likely is. Can anyone give me some feedback on the Kent/Medway area, or the others? Or are there other places we should consider? We'll be moving with two cats and a dog, so a flat in the city is not an option; we need a proper garden. Fortunately there will be an expat package that will cover rental expenses so we're blessed with not having to worry too much about the costs (within reason ).
We actually relocated to Bulgaria a few years ago (and re-relocated to the US) so I'm a little prepped for an international move, and I've started the paperwork and phone calls re: DEFRA to get the critters ready for the move. But I would love tips and tricks for those who have done the US-UK trip, what I need to bring, what's unnecessary to bring over, what I need to look out for, etc.
