Hi Melissa-
I have a friend who has a son who is blind and autistic.  I think he is 5 too.  I forwarded your email to her to see if she had any answers for you.  This is what she wrote.  If you don't mind me asking, where do you live?

Take care, Kathy

You could Call CARD 407-737-2568. If you live some place other than FL I would  suggest http://www.autismspeaks..org/.  Maybe she can find something there in her area.

Subject: [blindkid] Blind/Autistic child school placement/services

Hi all,

I have a 5 year old son who is blind and autistic. I am trying to figure out what sort of services/school placement he needs for 1st grade. He has been left behind in preschool for Kindergarten as the district could not find a placement for him. He has no usable vision, is nonverbal, not much receptive language and doesn't have that bad behaviors. He's currently  receiving ABA at home every day but none in school. Any thoughts on what type of program would be appropriate for him?
