Finnish video

Finland's innovative approach to special needs is summarised in a short video available now on Edutopia. Early intervention and sustained individual support for every student are keys to educating the whole child in Finnish schools.Teachers explain their approach which includes obligatory weekly meetings for all teachers, an extensive student welfare service and as early intervention as possible. Key concerns and drivers of the Finnish system are equity and quality.
