Special needs education

Expand all questions

Starting from January 25 all counties are allowed to resume contact learning in general education schools, vocational schools and institutions of higher education. Further regional restrictions may be enacted by an order of the Government of the Republic or the Health Board.

During the period of distance learning, schools where most students receive enhanced support or special support will remain open. Classes of students with special educational needs may continue with contact learning.

Contact activities may also be carried out if the student needs educational support services, the teacher considers that consultations are necessary to achieve learning outcomes, it is necessary to carry out practical training sessions, take exams, tests or participate in Olympiads.

If the teacher assesses that the child is capable of achieving learning outcomes through distance learning as well and the parent agrees, the educational activity does not necessarily take place entirely in the school building. If the child's special needs also necessitate constant supervision and they cannot cope independently with distance learning without significant parental assistance, the educational work must be organised at school.

The best solutions for organising distance learning for students with special educational needs can be found from the Rajaleidja centres.
