If a child has special needs, a meeting is arranged with the school counselor. The counselor sits with the child for an extended period of time, to ascertain the level and intensity of the special need. She will also discuss the same with the parents and go through medical notes if any.
In cases where the parent does not inform the school, the admission officer will usually be able to identify a child with special needs. The parent is then asked to come for another round of interview after the test. This interview is conducted by the school counselor who will determine the level of the special need. In cases where the school would be in a position to accommodate the child, admission is granted. In other cases, the parents are advised to seek admission in specialized schools.
