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:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
