The presidency of the Union rotates between the Nordic countries. In 2014 – 2016, Iceland is its home base.

 

The object of the Union is

- to disseminate information on Nordic issues in special education

- to discuss topical issues in Nordic special education

The next conference will take place in Iceland September 2016. It is targeted at teachers, experts and decision-makers in the field of special education. People with a general interest in the field special education should also feel welcome to attend.
