Rättviks kommun

Special needs and extra support

Schools have a responsibility to ensure that children with special needs have the benefit of a good, effective education.

This applies where a child has an illness, disability or other needs.
Information for guardians is given below.
Every school in the municipality has a pupil welfare team to provide support to pupils where needed.

The team includes the head teacher, special needs teachers, the school nurse and sometimes a welfare officer.
In years 7–9 (ages 13–16) and at upper secondary school, the team also includes study advisors and careers advisors.

There is also a central Pupil Health Service in the municipality.
The Service focuses on the individual and mainly works on tracking and investigating children and pupils, allocating resources and proposing action.
