Dedicated special needs classes and programs

Find schools with a class completed devoted to special needs education

Some schools have a class that’s exclusively devoted to special education, which runs parallel to regular classes. These classes offer a self-contained environment for special education, where each student receives support for their special needs. They’re usually run by instructors with training and expertise in special education.
