1. Go to GreatSchools.org. Sign up. Locate schools by plugging in town. I chose Warrenville, then District 200 showed up, then I chose High Schools. I clicked on WWS HS. Under that link, you can check out all aspects of the school. Click on the Test Scores and Stats tab, then on the link just below it that says Programs & Extracurriculars. When that screen pops up, choose Student Resources. This gives you a basic idea of what programs are available at the school. Keep in mind that these are parent reviews.
2. You can also google the school district itself, and in the search engine, put in "Special Education". You should be able to find detailed information about what that school provides. For District #200, the first thing that pops is their explanation of services.
3. Probably the best way to find out, though, would be to locate the name and phone number of the special ed director for that district, and give him/her a call. Every child's needs are unique, and talking directly to that person will be the best way for you to get a feel for what the district will offer your child in particular, and how you and your child will mesh with the district's philosophy.
Good luck in your search, and let me know if I can be of any further assistance to you!
Please call me with any questions.

One of the best sites to go to is greatschools.net. It not only has scores but, parents weigh in on their experiences with each school so, you get a more personal perspective. And, they have an area for special needs schools. http://www.greatschools.org/special-education.topic?content=1541.
