The best special ed department in the area is the one at Watchung Hills Regional High School. Go look at their program you'll be impressed.

Berkeley Heights has a great education program and a proactive special education program. The teachers are great and provide one on one or small groups with learning disabilities, but I'm not sure about Autism. I would call to make sure!

There is a school in New Providence (8 minute ride) - The
Developmental Learning Center, which is a school specifically for children/young adults with autism I'm pretty srue BH doesn't have what you need.

Looks like you've gotten some good early indicators - from here recommend you contact the schools directly. All great towns with well respected schools - be sure they have the special programs you need. As far as the home search, I'll throw my hat in the ring - do business in all of the towns you've identified as targets.

Hi there- I live in Berkeley Heights and am an active member of the school PTO. I have always heard good things about the special education program in our district. If you are interested, I can get you in touch with the appropriate school principal so you can obtain detailed information regarding the program. How old is your child?

I can be reached at 908-227-9885, or by email at

Berkeley Heights does have a good special education program, specifically for autism. My sister is a special education teacher in a local elementary school and works with autistic students. Basking Ridge also has a good special education program. I live in Berkeley Heights, and my office is in Basking Ridge, so I would be more than happy to answer any other questions you might have about the area.
