Students in primary through upper secondary school.
Before the Educational and Psychological Counselling Service (PPT) conducts an expert assessment, the school is responsible for considering and, if necessary, trying out different methods to ensure that you receive proper benefit from your education.
Brochures, documents, maps, etc.
Guidelines – applying for, or receiving the service
You or your parents can request that the school investigates to determine whether you require special education and what type of instruction, if any, you need.
Consent must be obtained from you or your parents before an expert assessment is conducted and before special education is implemented. You or your parents have the right to see the expert assessment and to make a statement before a decision is made. The decision to grant special education must specify the scope, content and organisation of the instruction.
You will normally receive an explanation together with the notification of the decision. You will always receive an explanation if there is a possibility that you will be dissatisfied with the decision. If an explanation is not included, you can obtain one by enquiring with the municipality within the deadline for appeals to the decision.
Time taken to consider the application
The municipality will process the case as soon as possible. If a decision cannot be reached on the case within one month, you will receive a written message stating the reason as to why. You will also be informed of when the decision is expected to be made.
Possibilities to appeal; procedure
If you are dissatisfied with the decision, you can appeal to the municipality within three weeks from the date on which you received it. Explain what you are dissatisfied with and why you believe the decision should be changed. If you need guidance, you can enquire with the municipality. If the municipality upholds its decision, the case will be passed on to the county governor, who will determine whether the appeal should be sustained.
