About the Hiroshima City Youth General Consultation Center (Japanese)

Consultations about education and higher education for children already enrolled in elementary/junior high school

Many parents can be overwhelmed by different information regarding education and further education for children with disabilities, including life post-graduation. The school which your child is currently attending will have the most information about how your child behaves in school, and so we recommend thoroughly consulting with their school first. If, during your consultation with your child’s school, there are things which you still do not understand, or if you want to know more about something you heard from their school, please contact the following:
