Mexico City - Post Report Question and Answers

What accommodations do schools make for special-needs kids?

There are a wide variety of accommodations available, but I cannot speak to how effective they may be. - May 2020

I am not sure as our son has not needed these accommodations. - Apr 2019

Essentially none. I would not bid on Mexico City if you have a special-needs child. - Jun 2018

Neither ASF nor Greengates has a good reputation for special-needs kids. - May 2017

They will find anything you need. - Feb 2010

No specific experience here, but the American School seems to be where most go. - Jan 2010

My only experience with kids of special needs is with the American School, and ASF has a "buddy system" for special needs kids but not an official curriculum - Nov 2008

The American school has some special accommodations, but I don't know specifics. The British school has little to none. We had a speech therapy need that could not be met by the local community. Luckily, there was an expat American living here that was able to help us. - Oct 2008
