Private schools that accept special needs children

We are planning on moving from Florida, USA to Portugal. We are in the process of filling out our D7 visas and hoping to be in Lisbon before Christmas. We are moving with 3 kids (11,9,& 8). The kids are doing distance learning from the US till the end of the school year. We are planning on staying in Lisbon for 6 months, but we are open to move to any location in Portugal. We just have to get to Portugal to figure that out. Lol.

My main concern is finding a school that will accept special needs students. My youngest has (high-functioning) Down Syndrome and we are looking for a school that offers "inclusion classroom." Can you please provide me with any information that pertains to schools that accept special needs students. We are open to all areas in Portugal. Thank you for taking the time to read and respond.
