All children have a right to free public education. Children with special needs may have one or more of the following difficulties: physical, intellectual, emotional, behavioural, speech, vision, hearing or language.Even children who are intellectually gifted can have special needs. Special education programs may be provided for these students. Classes for special needs students are often held within the regular schools. However, some schools are designed specially for students with special needs.
Extra-curricular activities are activities that take place outside of school hours—before school, after school or during lunch. These activities may include sports, hobbies, travel, leadership, arts or volunteer work. Each school has different extra-curricular activities for students. Taking part in these activities will help your child make friends, adjust to being in a school and develop new interests.
