A school made for students with Down syndrome

Have you ever been so frustrated in looking for the ideal school enrolment for your child with Down syndrome that you wished you could create a school designed just to meet his needs?

Three mothers in New York did just that, and the IDEAL School of Manhattan opened in 2006. It sounds just like its name, IDEAL. It is expensive. It is interesting.

It's not just for students with Down syndrome, as you will see from its excellent website giving a lot of information (more than most Australian schools give online): www.theidealschool.org

Could/should such a concept be adapted to NSW?
