All Other Special Needs

The term "Special Needs" encompasses a broad array of items; but in the context of children at school, the term deals with particular educational requirements resulting from learning difficulties, physical disability or emotional and behavioral difficulties.

Windsor Law interprets the term" Educational Requirements" as the particular specialized instruction for a student with Special Needs IEP (Individualized Education Plan.)

Other Special NeedsIn the United States, "special needs" is a term used in clinical diagnostic and functional development to describe individuals who require assistance for disabilities that may be medical, mental, or psychological. For instance, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders and the International Classification of Diseases (9th edition) both give guidelines for clinical diagnosis. Types of special needs vary in severity. People with autism, Down syndrome , dyslexia, blindness , ADHD, or cystic fibrosis , for example, may be considered to have special needs. However, special needs can also include cleft lips and/or palates, port-wine stains , or missing limbs.

A "special" school is a school catering to students who have special educational needs due to severe learning difficulties, physical disabilities or behavioral problems. Special schools may be specifically designed, staffed and resourced to provide appropriate special education for children with additional needs.

Sometimes a Special Needs student can be educated in a regular school with appropriate supports also known as services and or accommodations.
