We share the same joy and challenges. Our child has moderate to severe needs at times. My suggestion is to meet with the Asst. Superintendent of Special Education in the Simi Valley Unified School district to introduce your child and to express to them that your child's education is a top
priority as parents. I applaud you for doing your research in advance. I also find that if things are not going well as the educational system in any district can come against that your assertive communication with your IEP Team is a must and paramount to your child's success.
Good Luck and God Bless.
Please feel free to let me know if there is anything else, and welcome to a great town.

So, Simi Valley has great preschool programming for children with special needs through TriValley Regional center located at the corner of Erringer and Los Angeles Avenue.
When your child enters the school district, depending on your IEP some children in moderate to severe may be placed at any of the neighborhood schools as the district can not discriminate and has aids to help and attend to some chidlrens needs in the typical classrooms.
However Garden Grove elementary is the school attends to the children whose needs are best met on a campus with lots of people who know how to meet the special needs of some. Garden Grove has plenty of typical classrooms so the opportunities for full inclusion are there too. Mary Curtis is the school principal and she was my childs principal at a previous school. She's great.
As others mentioned, SVUSD is probably a great place to start but if you are asking on a real estate site, my guess is that you are trying to consider where to live in proximity to the school you might end up having as your childs school, so, I elaborated.
Ask me how I know about all this, well, my best friend is a special ed IBI trained lead aid in the district and her best friend is a school psychologist, and I care about it all because my son is a GATE student diagnosed high functioning Aspbergers. Another close friend has a daugher who is 10, at garden grove, is diagnosed CP and I would say seems moderate to severe but I dont know for sure, all I know is that she has a smile that lights up her face and makes those around her smile too.
Please contact me through my profile if I can help you with more details. Good luck!
I do have clients with children with special needs- I know there is a bus that picks them up- however not knowing more particulars about your daughter, I am not sure which way to go with the school suggestion. As I stated before calling the Simi Unified is the best option for now. If you write me back I will be happy to call my clients and ask them where their children attend school.
call me anytime.
