Admission Query for my 8 Years Old Special Needs Child in International Schools

The following is a question that was submitted to us by Paramjeet Singh, New Delhi/India
international-school-special-education I am an Indian diplomat. I have an 8 years old son, who suffers from Autism and needs special attention in school and 6 yrs old normal daughter studying in Gr. 1.
I will soon be given a foreign posting.
Shall be grateful if you could suggest in which cities/countries good special education facilities are available in English language, particularly in international schools.
Thanks, Paramjeet Singh
Hereunder are a few suggestions I had for Paramjeet Singh (please note that I am not a special education specialist)
For a background read the interview with Rebecca Grappo M.Ed. an International Educational Consultant about special educational resources in international schools .
Go to the European Council of International Schools and search the members school Directory. where you will find information on the leading English-medium schools around the world. Member schools are listed with full details including contact information, enrolment, student age ranges, curriculum and examinations, and a description of the facilities.
Please note that in some international schools the special education program appears in the learning support section.
We are posted in Brussels/Belgium right now and our boys attend the International School of Brussels. The school has an excellent learning support department with expertise in a range of aspects of learning including autism spectrum disorders.
