Chapter 3: Planning for Success


Each year, more and more international schools are exploring options for assisting special needs students, their parents and teachers. Careful planning and organization can assist international schools with their special needs initiative. For ease of organization, I have divided the planning/implementation process into six steps from pre-planning to first year retrospective evaluation. 

          Section 1: Pre-Planning -Why do You Want a Special Needs Program?

          Section 2:  Identifying School Needs -  What Do You Want to Accomplish?

          Section 3: Establishing A Support Base: Who Is Involved with Planning?

          Section 4: Planning for Implementation - What Do You Need to Get Started?

          Section 5: Building a Program - What Happens During the First Year?

          Section 6: Evaluation/Modification/Long Range Planning
