Some children experience difficulties in school, ranging from physical differences, problems with concentration, learning, speech, language, and perception to problems with behavior and/or making and keeping friends. Children with such special needs are usually entitled to receive additional services or accommodations through the public schools. Federal law mandates that every child receive a free and appropriate education in the least restrictive environment possible. The American Association of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry's Facts for Families provide concise and up-to-date information on school services for children with special needs for families.
