Q: Getting help for a 12 year old with special needs?

Does anyone have suggestions on where I can find help for my 12 year old daughter with special needs? She was going to go back to school in the US but that has fallen through at the last moment so we need to find a solution quickly.

I had quick look over Internet about 'education for kids with special needs in China', but I found only one web link about Hong Kong's ordinance:

There is another article on SCMP, which I can't see (no load on my broadband), so I'll just post link to it:

I worked in Public Primary School in Fukang, Xinjiang last year, and I had few 'autistic' students in Grade 3. I'm not medic, so my wording about 'students with special needs' might not be appropriate.

Chinese teachers told me, 'special needs students' are required to attend first 3 Grades, and there's no special school for them, so they attend same schools as every other kid.

You could get right info at SAFEA (Foreign Expert Bureau). They certainly have listings of all Schools in China. Write 'SAFEA' in search above for address and contact no. in your city.

Were you using the Homestead programme in the US? As the Scandinavian highlighted it would help if you elaborated a little more on her specific needs and your requirements.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
