Sometimes an international school is not the best place for your child. In Shanghai at the moment no school offers "pull-out" services to help mainstream children with moderate to severe special needs. You may also be surprised at what an international school in Shanghai would classify as "moderate". This is something to be fully aware of before moving to Shanghai !
If you feel your child would benefit from not being in a mainstream school, for whatever reason, the options are home schooling or a programme offered by ELG's Innovative Learning Centre.
Shanghai has a large and thriving home schooling group that currently meets once a month. Please email for more details.
The Innovative Learning Centre offers places for children and adults with special needs.
