Vermont South Special School teaches primary school-aged children who have been diagnosed as having a mild intellectual disability. This means they have a ‘full scale intelligence quotient’ (IQ) between 50 and 70. Enrolment in a specialist school is a little more complicated than enrolling into a local primary school. For a child to attend a specialist school they need to be receiving Department of Education funding through the Program for Students with a Disability (PSD).
