Hello. My mom is writing a presentation in English and she stumbled upon a problem with which I can't help her so I hope one of you guys might help us solve the issue. The sentence: Special needs is not an illness. Problem: we are not sure whether is Special needs is... or Special needs are... Is the singular form correct or the plural one? I am for singular form, I have a feeling Special needs is a plural noun, but I am not sure. Thanks.
