  15. NYC Schools Thoughts on ASD NEST for non-ASD kid?...(more) 2-10-2014 2:42pm (1 reply)
    We are considering enrolling our child in an ASD NEST Kindergarten class with two teachers for four ASD kids and eight non-ASD kids. All of the material I've seen speaks to the benefit for the ASD kids. Does anyone have experiences they can share from the perspective of the non-ASD kids? Our child is bright and social.

    • Take the mind-blowing teacher/pupil ratio and run with it! Most of the class will be non-ASD, and the ASD kids in that program are the mildest of the mild. Normal academics. 2-11-2014 10:47am
