What accommodations do schools make for special-needs kids?

None. - Mar 2, 2015
I'm not positive, but I think virtually zero. - Aug 3, 2014
AIS/D is supposed to be good for "middle of the road" kids - too smart or too many special needs and they won't do well there. Don't expect your kid to get an IEP. - Jul 28, 2014
I believe AISD can accommodate some special needs with success and care. No first-hand account. - Aug 14, 2011
There is a school psychologist. There are no special classes. There is at least one special needs kids in the middle school. - Jan 29, 2011
The school recently took a very retrograde attitude towards the daughter of a colleague who was arriving after the opening of the school year in Dhaka. His daughter needed an evaluation for a mild learning disability, and the school administration attempted to force the father of the child to take her out of the country for an assessment, since the school's assessor was "booked up" for a month. The principal also proceeded to mock the quality of the school where the young woman had been studying previously in South America. - Jan 7, 2011
Limited only. - Apr 27, 2010
I have heard they do make accommodations. - Aug 6, 2009
Caution - very little. Communication has been terrible. - Oct 27, 2008
