Special and Gifted Education
The special education framework provides the child with special needs with a physical and educational environment which makes it possible for him/her to spend many hours there, to function normatively and easily and to be challenged in a manner appropriate to his/her needs and potential. The process is geared to optimal, quick assimilation into the general community.
