Special education

If a student is having difficulty with learning and/or requires extra support in any area of school life, the special education teachers are here to provide assistance. The special education teachers work with the students, parents, classroom or subject area teachers, and the Community Welfare Team to help the student to succeed. The special education teachers can provide in-class assistance, individual and small group tutoring, learning plan development, and referrals for formal testing.

In addition to a school’s own special education, there are also regional and City-level services in Vantaa. These services offer the student strong targeted support either on a temporary or permanent basis. Access to these services is always done through the regional coordinators.
