Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att beskriva föräldrars upplevelser av att ha ett barn med psykiska och/eller kognitiva svårigheter i skolan. Författarna gjorde semistrukturerade intervjuer via telefon med 10 föräldrar som har barn med svårigheter i skolan. Data analyserades enligt en kvalitativ innehållsanalys. Analysen resulterade i följande kategorier föräldrars behov av att vara spindeln i nätet, frustrationen över att inte få tillräckligt med stöd, skolmiljöns påverkan på barnen, känslan av att inte veta vad som händer samt positiva upplevelser av skolan.

Resultatet av studien visade att föräldrar upplever att det finns brister i skolmiljön som påverkar barnen i deras aktivitetsutförande. Föräldrarna upplever att det saknas viktig kunskap hos pedagogerna som ger dem möjlighet att stötta deras barn på rätt sätt så barnen får samma möjligheter som de övriga barnen på skolan. Författarna i studien diskuterar resultatet utifrån vad arbetsterapeuter kan bidra med för kunskap till pedagogerna samt stödja barnen till att uppnå bästa möjliga resultat i skolarbetet. Fortsatt forskning inom ämnet skulle kunna handla om fäders upplevelse samt skolans upplevelse av att ha barn med svårigheter inom skolan. 

Abstract [en]

The purpose of the study was to describe parent´s experiences of having children with mental and/or cognitive difficulties in school.The authors made semi-structured interviews by telephone with 10 parents who have children with difficulties in school. Data was analyzed according to a qualitative content analysis. The analysis resulted in the following categories  parents need to be the spider in the network, the frustration of not getting enough support, the school environment's impact on the children, the feeling of not knowing what is happening and positive experiences of the school. The result of the study showed that parents find that there are deficiencies in the school environment that affect the children in their activity performance. The parents feel that there is no important knowledge among the educators, which gives them the opportunity to support their children in the right way so that the children have the same opportunities as the other children at the school. The authors of the study discuss the results based on what occupational therapists can contribute for knowledge to the pedagogues and support the children in achieving the best possible results in schoolwork. Continued research on this subject could be about the experience of fathers and the school's experience of having children with difficulties in school.
