Special educational support and special needs education
Norway spends significant resources on providing special educational support and special needs education. It has long been a political goal to improve adapted tuition in schools. The aim is to improve learning outcomes for all pupils so that fewer of them require special needs education.
In this chapter we will start by looking at figures on children who require special educational support in kindergarten. Then we will move on to statistics and research on the extent and organisation of special needs provision in primary and secondary schools.
