Social mandate

Statped’s social mandate is to contribute so that children, youth and adults with special education needs in the best possible way can master their own lives and participate actively in education, work and society.

Statped’s special needs educational profile shall be distinct and intelligible and our organization shall be characterised by the accessibility of its services. Statped’s work is sanctioned by the Norwegian Day Care Institutions Act, the Norwegian Education Act and the Adult Education Act.
