Special Development Schools - Find a Service

About this service

There are many schools for children with a disability. Some schools cater for one particular disability, while others specialise in different types of disabilities.  The Department of Education website lists special schools.  While these special schools can vary in the range and level of disabilities they can cater for, all have a common focus to provide appropriate and individual education. For more information on additional programs and services available for children with a disability, please visit the Department of Education and Training Students with Disabilities website.
