The Norwegian Support System for Special Education, Statped, is a national agency managed by the Norwegian Directorate for Education and Training. Statped offers special education services in six specific areas of expertise: deaf-blindness/dual visual and hearing impairment, acquired brain injury, hearing impairment, complex learning difficulties, speech and language impairment and visual impairment.

Statped is organised in four multi-disciplinary regional centres and a central office with coordinating functions. A fundamental principle for Statped is to provide equivalent services to all municipalities and counties in the country.
