Hi.

Any recommendations on schools for teenagers with special needs in the Melbourne area. My daughter is 15 and is Downs Syndrome.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Teresa, I can't recommend a specific school, but I recommend you contact the Department of Education in Victoria (https://www.education.vic.gov.au/Pages/default.aspx) who will likely be able to point you in the right direction. You may also find the Down Syndrome Victoria organisation (https://www.downsyndromevictoria.org.au/) a great source of information and support in finding the right school for your daughter.
