Special Schools (Förderschulen)

Munich has many associations for the disabled, be it a physical or intellectual disability (see 'Services for the Disabled'), and also has provisions for children with learning or social disabilities. A list of Förderschulen, special schools for children, can be found below.

There are many reasons why a child may need special support in education: family problems leading to learning difficulties, a mental or a physical disability. Munich's Förderschulen cater for all these needs. A sample of these schools are listed below. You can find a complete list in the Bürgerservice section of the GelbeSeiten under Förderschulen.

A special program for children up to 21 who have problems performing well in the traditional school system is P.I.K.A.S.S.I.O. "Projekt für Integration, Kreativität, Arbeit, Schulung, Service, Innovation und Organisation" (Project for integration, creativity, work, educations, service, innovation and organisation).
