What accommodations do schools make for special-needs kids?

UAS tries but parents should reach out early to describe needs. - Nov 2021

We had two children in the secondary school that required an aide and accommodations. UAS did a fantastic job working with us and helping our children be successful in the classroom. The teachers were very understanding and the overall attitude at the school is accommodating and friendly, so our kids really felt good about being there. The primary school has more experience with special-needs issues and most parents are happy with their accommodations. If you have a child with special needs, reach out to the school with honesty and transparency; I believe the UAS administration really want to help but will also tell you if they don't feel they can. - Aug 2018

We have two special needs kids at the American school and we are extremely pleased with how they have been accommodated. It says a great deal about the faculty and administration that such a small school is willing and able to take on special needs kids where other larger international schools say they won't or can't. The social environment is very accepting to special needs kids. - Aug 2016
