    Deciding on your child’s education is a personal decision that should be based on your child’s individual needs. Visiting different school environments and discussing what support they can offer your child is an integral part of the decision making process. With individualised support and a caring environment, a child with a language disorder should be able to function in a mainstream school environment. Factors such as behaviour, ongoing medical needs and social/emotional needs should all be taken into consideration when deciding on the best environment for your child.
