    Could you please provide me with any suitable special learning/vocational school in Nigeria for my autistic adult son of 24 years? We spent many years in changing him from one regular school to another without any success. He is still unable to read& write.I only just discovered this your site. Though we live in Port Harcourt,we are prepared to relocate to assist him so as to fit into that institution.
    Thank you.
