Is it possible to place children in preschools and institutions of general secondary education with a certificate of IDP?
Children with the status of internally displaced persons or children who have the status of a child who suffered as a result of hostilities and armed conflicts have the privilege of enrolling in municipal (state) preschool and general secondary education institutions. At the same time, when submitting an application for the child's enrollment, the parents or other legal representatives of the child must present the original document confirming the child's status - a certificate of registration at the place of actual residence.

If it is impossible to obtain a copy of the conclusion on your own, the parents (other legal representatives) of a child with special needs can apply to the inclusive resource center at the child's place of temporary residence and obtain a copy of the conclusion or conduct an initial (secondary) comprehensive psycho-pedagogical assessment of the individual's development.
