Special School Law and Legal Definition

Special schools are institutes dedicated to improving the lives of children and adolescents with pediatric developmental disabilities, learning disorders, and behavioral problems through patient care, special education, research, and professional training. Mostly special schools will be specifically designed, staffed and resourced to provide the appropriate special education for children with additional needs. Generally, students attending special schools do not attend any classes in mainstream schools. Special schools provide individualized education, addressing specific needs of students.
