Learning support in basic education
- Public service
In Vantaa, the support that a pupil requires is primarily organised by different flexible means in their local school. The support is organised in collaboration with the pupil’s own teacher, all the pupil’s teachers, and supporting personnel if necessary.
To whom and on what terms
Part-time special needs teaching may be given to pupils who have difficulties with such areas as linguistic or mathematical skills. The difficulties may also be associated with individual subjects, study skills, social skills or study motivation.
The service is free of charge.
Basic education pupils who have difficulties with their learning or school attendance are entitled to part-time special needs teaching in connection with other instruction.
Part-time special needs teaching is provided in connection with other instruction either simultaneously with other teaching, for small groups or as individual instruction. The municipality ensures that the schools have access to the required expertise in special pedagogy.
