How do you choose a school for a child with suspected FASD?

My 6 year old is in a great infant school at the moment but will be moving up to juniors in a years time. Schools appear to have little or no knowledge of the complexities of educating a child with FASD - even, suspected FASD. Walking around schools on open days does not help, talking to staff does not help because they firmly believe that they will "manage", but they can't. Where do these children get educated because they often have a good brain? They just do not concentrate for long. Although the information goes in - they cannot get it out again. Especially on demand. Are these children destined to fail educationally? We are in the process of trying to obtain a EHC plan (Statement of Educational Needs).
