Long Island autism program draws parents from across state

A New York school's award-winning program for educating students with autism has led parents to flock to the district, doubling its autistic population in four years. The 10,000-student district now educates more students with autism than any other on Long Island.

Jackson Louie, a 9-year-old with dark, shaggy hair and chubby cheeks, sits across from student teacher Jaclyn Lee. A thick three-ring binder, in which Lee writes constantly, is on the desk between them. Newsday (Long Island, N.Y.)
