I have a 7 year old daughter with a C1-C2 sci. She is on a vent and nonverbal. We are currently in Knoxville TN. The schools are miserable and the doctors and therapy are not that great. We drive to Baltimore (9 hours to see good doctors). I am thinking of relocating, and wanted some input. I am a warm weather person, no getting around it so I'd like to stay in a warmer climate. I also feel she'll stay healthier without the freezing cold winter as well. She has been extremely healthy and happy the 6 years she's been injured and don't want to compromise that. But I do want her to have an education, which she is not getting now. She is pretty much wasting away in a CDC-A classroom. It's like sending her to a crappy babysitter! I am also wanting good doctors and therapists in the area, people who are comfortable treating and working with high level SCI.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you!!
