Special Education

Special Education covers the education of children with particular needs. Gifted students, who also have specific needs, are treated elsewhere.

It provides specific programs and support. This may be in regular classrooms, with modified curriculums or additional human resources. It can mean placement in special classes within regular schools or, if impairment is significant, placement in special schools. Other support is available such as transport, building modifications, Individual Education Plans and assistive technology.

An inclusive approach is used wherever possible.

The Special Education page provides an overview. It does not target specific impairments or disorders.

Inclusions on the Special Education Resources page may prove of value.
