Learning methods for students with learning disabilities : A comparison study between teachers in Sweden and the English-speaking world (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

This is a research study about children who develop learning difficulties during the early years of schooling, and how teachers can help them best learn. The focus will be on learning methods, which help students with learning disabilities, learn to read. I decided to make this an international study, by comparing a Swedish teachers observation, to teachers from five different English-speaking countries (USA; England; Canada; Australia; New Zealand).

I made a lot of international contacts through my work as a volunteer for Karlstad University international office, host program. Through these contacts, I got in contact with different international participants for my research study. I conducted interviews with my participants on Skype. The end result of what I learned from these interviews was very interesting and educational, especially how the different school systems function and how the teachers work with children with learning disabilities in their elementary schools. For example, most of the teachers work a lot, with sounding out letters and personalized schedules. A few of the teachers work a lot with inclusion and specialized curriculums for the students with learning disabilities, which their department of education pressed a lot on, while other teachers department of education did not. 

Abstract [sv]

Det här är en undersökning om barn som utvecklar inlärningssvårigheter under de tidiga skolåren och hur lärare kan hjälpa dem att lära sig bäst. Fokus kommer att vara på inlärningsmetoder som hjälper studenter med inlärningssvårigheter att lära sig läsa. Jag bestämde mig för att göra detta till en internationell studie genom att jämföra en svensk lärare erfarenheter med olika lärare från fem engelsktalande länder (USA, England, Kanada, Australien, Nya Zeeland). Jag har många internationella kontakter genom mitt arbete som volontär för Karlstads universitets internationella kontors värdprogram. Genom dessa personer kom jag i kontakt med olika internationella deltagare för min forskningsstudie. Jag genomförde intervjuer med de flesta av mina respondenter via Skype.

Slutresultatet av det jag lärde mig av dessa intervjuer var mycket intressant och pedagogiskt, särskilt hur de olika skolsystemen fungerar och hur lärarna arbetar med barn med inlärningssvårigheter. Det visade sig att det fanns flera likheter men även skillnader i hur de olika lärarna arbetade med elever som hade inlärningssvårigheter, till exempel arbetar de flesta lärarna mycket med ljudträning och personliga scheman. Några av lärarna arbetade dessutom med integrering och specialiserade läroplaner för elever med inlärningssvårigheter.
