Right support at the right time? : - A study about teachers’ and special needs teachers’ views on writing for younger students with writing difficulties (English)
Abstract [en]

Today´s society demands that every individual is able to communicate in writing. It is the school's responsibility to provide the students with the conditions to succeed. Teachers and special needs teachers need to identify students in need of support as early as possible and provide them with the appropriate instruction to become proficient writers. The purpose of this study is to investigate several teachers' and special needs teachers' perceptions on teaching writing for younger pupils who are at risk of not attaining the goals of writing for grade 3. We interviewed 3 teachers and 3 special needs teachers about their writing knowledge, what instructional methods they use, what efforts are being made in regards to pupils with writing difficulties and what challenges and opportunities they see. The results show that teachers and special needs teachers can detect struggling students early, however, the origin of the difficulties and the right support are often difficult to determine. The support these students receive are mainly extra adaptations in the classroom. Both teachers and special needs teachers use many different working methods in their teaching for these students, but express that there is a lack of knowledge and research on writing and that time and group size are challenges in providing a good writing instruction.
