What accommodations do schools make for special-needs kids?

Accommodating. - Jul 19, 2012
ISH is excellent, if you are able to get in. - Jan 23, 2011
One of the reasons I do not have a child in school here is that I did not think the school here would have proper help for the special-needs of my high-school-aged child. I hear they have minimal help for very minor needs. - May 9, 2010
It depends on the special need. I know a child with Down Syndrome that attends ISH and the parents are happy. Another family, however, had to send their child to a boarding school in the U.S. because no schools here could accomodate his severe disability. The best thing is to contact the school directly and explain your situation. - Mar 26, 2008
