Welcome to the SPEDUREG Project Workspace

The title of this Nordplus Horizontal -project is ”Aren’t we all special? – How to meet the educational needs of all children in a classroom? Competence, procedures and attitudes in a multi-actor and cross-sector regional perspective".

We wished to pose these questions to raise discussion on the "speciality" of special education, on one hand, and on the issue of resources needed to meet the increasing needs in this area, on the other hand. Thus, we do not aim to give direct and explicit answers to these questions as result of the SPEDUREG-project.

The SPEDUREG-network seeks
to exchange knowledge and experience on innovative regional cooperation solutions to address specialeducation/learning needs within an early intervention and cross-sector, “multi-helper” perspective,which builds on regional cooperation across municipalities.

The network will also map success factors in terms of competence requirements in the above described cooperation.
Furthermore, the network activities will enhance building of
- collaboration between local public authorities and higher education institutes in the area of special
education and early intervention in the Nordic-Baltic countries.
- awareness across the Nordic-Baltic region of trans-disciplinary and cross-sector innovative solutions in
the area of special education and early intervention.

SPEDUREG is coordinated by Stord/Haugesund University College, Norway. Partners represent various organisations from Denmark, Estland and Finland.
