5. Education

The law provides education for children with disabilities, including regular classes, special classes, special schools, and itinerant teaching, etc. Special classes in regular elementary and secondary schools comprise classes for students with intellectual disabilities, orthopedic disability, physical weakness, visual impairment, and hearing impairment. Special Schools for Children with Disabilities are established for the blind, the deaf, the orthopedically disabled, the intellectually disabled, and the physically weak children. The City Education Committees or Consultation Centers for Education accept consultations concerning school registration.

The law provides support for children and students registered at these schools through provision of books, meals (lunch), transportation fees for commuting and for school trips, and educational supplies. *Nursing services and community participation of children with disabilities are provided by programs under other laws.
