    People with special needs

    I was in class discussing about people with special needs. At one point, I grew tired of saying the same phrase so I said, 'special needs people' Does this mean the same thing or is this grammatically wrong?

    Re: People with special needs

    It means the same thing. When written, I suggest you hyphenate special needs, as: special-needs people.
