Question ID: 295415
Am posting on beahlf of a friend, who is considering a move to Bend, Oregon: She asks for information on private, non-secular elementary and middle schools in the Bend, Oregon area. Meaning within a 5-mile radius. She is aware of the Cascades Academy and has looked at their website, so don't repeat that info. But it's a brand new school and she wants more indepth information about it- beyond the basic facts that are listed. Find out more about school's reputation, philosophy, curriculum. She has heard that it is an off-shoot of Sunriver Academy, in Central Ore., which no longer exists. Try to find out more. In addition to Cascades, are there any other private, NON SECULAR schools in the Bend area. Regarding PUBLIC schools, please find out about the elementary and middle schools in the area called WEST BEND. On the medical front: Her 7-year-old son has been diagnosed and is being treated for PLAGIOCEPHALY, a deformity of the skull. He sees a pediatric osteopath at the Osteopathic Center for Children in San Diego. She WILL consult with him about Oregon doctors, but he's out of the country and she needs info before his return, as she's leaving to check out Bend in the next few weeks. Not intersted in a dialogue regarding the pros or cons of DO'S (doctors of osteopathy.) What she wants is a list and as much info as you can find on pediatric DO's in the Bend area. So far she has found the Central Oregon Pediatric Association in Bend (she hasn't checked to see if they have a website yet, so you can)-- and she has no names of specific doctors there. The other is High Lake -- a facility in Bend. Again, all she has is the name. Please research these two , as well as any other pediatric DO's you can find in the area. For schools, she wants a 5-mile radius, but for medical care, she'd be willing to go further, as Bend is near Redmond, Oregon, about 15 miles away. Perhaps there are Redmond medical personnel. And finally, as part of her son's care, he also needs a PEDIATRIC OCCUPATIONAL THERAPIST, hopefully one that specializes in vision therapy and fine motor skills development. But she realizes that that much breakdown might not show up online. The important thing is that the OT works specifically with children. At minimum, Names, addresses and phone numbers, please.
