Hi I'm a student teacher researching whether a child with special educational needs is 'better off' in a mainstream or special school. I'd be interested to hear from anyone with experience of SEN children who were/should have been better off in either school and why? Are there particular cases of special needs which are/aren't appropriate to either school etc? Have there been children that, in hindsight, would have had more success in school/society if they'd been in a particular school? thanks in anticipation.
