What accommodations do schools make for special-needs kids?

They do their best to differentiate in the classroom. If the student's needs cannot be met that way, they facilitate the connection to an in-class learning assistant (paid for by the parent, this person helps with the student's learning in the class). Or they facilitate connection with after school tutors. - Mar 2019
