Detroit Metro area Elementary Schools that Mainstream

Hello All!
Moving to Detroit metro area with sweet 8year old with Down Syndrome (ID Mild). Need recommendations for school districts (particularly elementary schools) that mainstream. Currently live in NC...child is assigned homeroom with typical peers and resource for math, language and reading. Majority all day with peers.

Thanks in advance!

I'm sorry that you haven't gotten any responses. I'm in a completely different part of the country so can't help with specifics. However, mainstreaming is protected under federal law, and even if the school/district doesn't always mainstream, you can advocate for it. Sometimes, what kids get really comes down to how hard their parents are willing to push for it. You might need to hire an educational advocate to help with the process, but even if this isn't what they usually do, it is your son's legal right.

but everything has pros and consĀ  shrug.gif
