Pupils with ADHD-diagnosis in school : A qualitative study of four teachers’ experience and view of the ADHD-diagnose from 1th - 7th grade (English)
Abstract [en]

How teachers teach children with attention difficulties. This is a qualitative interview based on the experiences of four teachers. I want this study to examine teachers' experience and views about ADHD diagnosis. I would also like to find out what teachers do and think about the practice which surrounds students with ADHD. How to formulate and think of four active teachers about ADHD? What are the implications of the diagnosis perceive the four teachers interviewed that the diagnosis must for students? Among the measures that consider the four teachers interviewed are most effective for students with ADHD because they provide an equal education?


Those questions are addressed to specifically learn about how they proceed in their activities. The interview responses, I have compiled and compared with literature highlighting subject. Results the study shows that there are many similarities in the teachers' treatment of children with ADHD. A similarity which consists of teachers have a common approach, a clear structure with clear limits and procedures and that they clear up activities for children with ADHD. The teachers mentioned that it is important to adapt the environment to facilitate and help children with concentration problems. All four teachers interviewed believe they have a good training for dealing with concentration difficulties, but that they need continuous training. Data used in this study is qualitative. The selection of teachers has been through recommendations and personal knowledge
