Does this diagnosis mean your child can never be cared for in a preschool or daycare setting? Absolutely not.

As a parent, you will want to be certain that the school you choose is going to be best for your child. One of the ways to make sure that a school is in your child's best interests is to make sure that it's student-centered. A student-centered school is one that always puts the needs of the student first and is dedicated to making sure that a student succeeds. This goal is ahead of pleasing the school board, making money, or improving athletic facilities to host tournaments.
