Multi-professional Tier 3 support training and coaching started in Finland on 9th of September 2020. Reserachers from the University of Jyväskylä held the first training on CICO Plus intervention for the school teams. CICO Plus is a more intensified individualized support model for pupils who are non-responsive for the basic CICO model. There were 40 participants from 12 different schools from the three Finnish partner municipalities: Kontiolahti, Lappeenranta and Varkaus. Big thanks to trainers Anne Karhu and Mika Paananen and participating school teams!
After the first training in September the tier 3 development has continued in collaboration with the researchers and the schools and the CICO Plus manual piloting has started. In Spring 2021 there will be more CICO Plus training and the schools are supported on organizing the multi-professional individualised support.
