I will be relocating to MI and my office is in Dearborn.  I'm looking for some ideas on great places to live.  I do have an 8 year old son who has Autism and is high functioning so education and services are also a factor in my choice.  Of course I'm interested in living in an area with like minded individuals. 

 

Any information would be much appreciated.

It looks like your post might have been missed so I'm bumping it up for attention. :bump: Anyone have a recommendation to share?

I have only lived in the Lansing area in Michigan (which is a bit of a hike from Dearborn), but I love it and find it a really rich and supportive place to raise kids, no matter what your stripe. We have a lot of resources for Crunchy families, and schooling options are good (including several Montessori private schools and 1 public). Ann Arbor seems to have more diversity of schooling options, I know they have a Waldorf school, among others. If homeschooling is an option for you, I know Lansing has an amazing homeschooling network.

Good luck with the move: it's exciting to have all of these options open, and I'm sure it's also overwhelming to make such a change

You probably already moved by this point but Royal Oak area is great and there is a school called Eton Academy for kids with autism and special needs, I think in **********.
Dearborn itself has wonderful schools.

Hi! I was reading archived threads and came across yours. I've recently moved to Metro Detroit. I'm in a temp housing and looking to find a town with great schools for my 8 yo child with special needs. I also have a typical, middle school aged child.

If you've already moved to Michigan, what town and school did you choose? I'm looking at Rochester Hills, Rochester and Troy areas.

Thanks in advance for your reply.
