The purpose of this study is to investigate the potential of children with intellectual disabilities to be involved in school activities if their special school is located in the same building as the elementary school. The focus is on the opportunities for interaction between children from compulsory school and children from other school types and their peer relationships.
The study was done in a school that had a special school in the same building as the elementary school. The study included four students from special school, their special education teacher and an assistant principal. Observations and interviews were used to gather information. Time geography were used both as a method and theory. Results were interpreted with the central time geography’s concepts resource restriction and projects.
The results show that the students are treated differently depending on which school they attend even though the goal is another. Collaboration between different types of schools is done on a project basis, and the school offers co-operation across different types of schools. This does not lead to that children from the primary school get peer relationships with children from elementary school.
