What accommodations do schools make for special-needs kids?

Special need accommodations can be done for minor issues. This is not a good place to bring a child who needs a lot of help. - Jul 21, 2017
Best to contact the schools directly, but I believe special needs accommodations are limited, if at all. - Oct 16, 2016
There seem to be some accommodations for kids with special needs but not much and not exceptional, although this might be slowly changing. - Aug 2, 2015
BMIS is attentive to your child's development and carves out time to focus on their needs but has limited additional resources. Sandi is good for occupational therapy. - Sep 17, 2013
I know that there are not many accommodations for kids with special needs. It is dependent upon who is currently in country at the schools and whether they can provide support. - Sep 26, 2012
At BMIS there are specialists who meet with students to handle reading issues. They can also recommend sources of outside assistance that are available in the area. - Sep 17, 2009
BMIS has a specialist teacher. However, children with learning challenges will probably not get the support required to help them thrive. - Jul 27, 2009
