As a parent, you may wonder which school is the best fit for your child. This is especially critical when your child has special health needs. It is important to understand what points to look at when you are finding a child-friendly school for children with special needs.

Depending on the extent of disability and unique needs of your child you may choose from inclusive schools or special schools. Mainstream schools with an inclusive setup are available in many cities in the country. Here typical children study and learn alongside children with unique needs. However, please ensure that there are special educators/shadow teachers in the school’s staff roll. As they will skillfully attend to your child’s special academic needs. On the other hand, parents may prefer to admit their child to a special school. These schools have special educators and therapists. And they cater to all the academic and condition management needs of your child’s medical condition.

Please ensure that the school you opt for attends to the basic needs and care of your child. Above are 5 points to consider when looking for a child-friendly school for your children.
