To special education

The Dutch-speaking schools for special education (BuSO) in Brussels operate their own registration policy. In most schools, you have to apply for a place for your child first before you can register them. In some schools, you can register immediately. There are also certain rules of priority that apply.

Is your child attending special secondary education at this moment in time? If so, your child will remain registered in the same school next year also.

Is your child attending mainstream education at present but going to special education next year? In that case, contact the school for special education as soon as possible. Ask the CLB or the special needs coordinator at your child's school for help.
