What accommodations do schools make for special-needs kids?

My wife worked in Korean public schools during our time there, and she often mentioned the fact that there is a shortage of special-needs programs here. - Jul 2015

KIS has a very good program to help kids with learning needs. Not sure about other needs or schools. - Feb 2015

Same as in U.S. for the DOD schools. Can't say for the international schools. - Jan 2014

The local schools often shun children with special needs. I knew of one parent whose kids went to private school; however, there special needs child attended the US Military school that catered to children with such needs. Many parents end up homeschooling these children due to lack of services. Attitudes in Korea are changing, however. It will require a network and infrastructure to facilitate. - Sep 2009
