What accommodations do schools make for special-needs kids?

See info from the Overseas Schools Offering Support to Children with Special Needs 2015-2016 at the link below. Athens has a variety of international schools who can make accommodations, but the earlier you contact them directly to discuss your kids the better. www.state.gov/documents/organization/176076.pdf - Dec 20, 2016
ACS was not very accommodating for special needs. St Catherine's has "shadow" teachers available for hire. They are hired by the school, but parents pay the cost and the "shadow" teacher sits with the child usually half the day to keep the student focused or works on specific skills and subjects. - Sep 7, 2013

I would not bring a special-needs child to Athens. - Jun 30, 2010
From what I've heard parents have to work to make their own accomodations, such as finding an aide to accompany special-needs kids in the classroom. - Jun 20, 2008
