Special needs education

Special needs education offers specialised schooling, based on the needs and abilities of pupils and students. The Brussels-Capital Region runs a comprehensive special needs education network for children in primary and secondary education.

Special needs education is split into various types, tailored to the general and specialised educational needs of the children. These needs are established on the basis of the primary disability, enabling children to be brought together in group courses corresponding to the shared needs.

Like other types of education, special needs education in Brussels is the remit of the French and Flemish Communities.
