Hi All,
Is there any parent from Chicago? I have a 4 yr old autistic child and we are now living in Texas. We are planning to move to Chicago for a new job opportunity. Need to know more about living in Chicago with an autistic child. 

How are the services there? Is it easy to find services like ABA closer to where you live?I have heard Chicago is very crowded and traffic is much more than here. So is the services easily accessible and how do you commute to different services?How about schools and school support?\I know the weather is very harsh during the month of Nov - March with freezing temperature. So do you find it an issue for taking your kid outdoors for play during those months?
How about insurance coverage for ABA?
what is the best area to live where i can find Indian neighborhood?

Please provide answers to questions above.
Please do give more information and suggestions if i have missed anything.

Thank You.
