She also got to see how the school works with self-produced learning materials - in this case a cookbook with symbols. - It is particularly great for our students with the royal visit. This is guaranteed highlight of the year, said Principal Johansen.
Haukåsen. It is a special school for pupils with significant and complex problems. The school has 120 employees, including 30 special education teachers and 80 pupils aged from 6 to 20 years.
Approximately 60 percent of them are physically disabled, and half have little or no verbal language. The training ranges from literacy and numeracy training to motor training and sensory stimulation. Training in daily living skills such as dressing and undressing, cooking and social training is also central to education.
