What accommodations do schools make for special-needs kids?
Lots. Like in the US. Very accommodating from what I heard (though I do not have any special needs children). - Aug 2020
They take care of them well. - May 2012
Same as America. - Dec 2010
Private schools do not make accomodations--one must go to public school. I don't know much more about it, other than speech therapy is not offered. There is a program for autistic children. - Nov 2010
Public schools seem to work with special needs more than private school. There is far less integration into the mainstream classes than in the U.S. Early intervention services through the age of 5 are similar to the U.S. But waiting times to get into the system can be long. - Apr 2009
