Special educational needs

Primary school and pre-school meet the needs of most children. For some however this is not sufficient. About 1/5 of the children in primary school and pre-school need more support in their development.

For a small part of the children the need of extra support can not be covered by the regular staff. Schools have therefore the possibility to apply for extra help together with the parents. For some children this could be an education at a school for children with special needs or in one of Lund’s resource schools and groups.
