All B.C. public schools and independent schools have guidelines and supports in place to help ensure that children with special needs have equitable access to education services. Some schools also specialize in teaching children with special needs – in the same way they may offer specialized programs in areas such as sports or fine arts.
To learn more about special needs policies, programs and services, visit the Ministry of Education’s special education home page.
To find a school that specializes in teaching children with special needs, use the school choices tool or talk to the special needs contact in your school district.
