What accommodations do schools make for special-needs kids?

Not much. - Aug 2, 2016
The international school has an elevator. - Aug 2, 2015
Special needs children will have challenges finding support in this country, but there are some resources available. - Aug 12, 2014
This would be a difficult post for special-needs kids. I do not believe TIS makes many accommodations. I'm not sure about the other schools, but they are all fairly small, and special education is not well-developed in Albania. - May 18, 2013
Not many. There are stairs up to most of the classrooms. One child had broken her foot and was on crutches, and before she got the hang of them, she couldn't make it up the stairs for half of her classes and just went home for that half. I have heard of an Albanian woman who has worked with Autistic children. - Dec 27, 2012
