Abstract [en]

I have investigated how municipalities support children with ADHD. I have interviewed persons responsible in five different municipalities. The persons have had the authority to decide how the support funds are to be shared in the municipality. Mostly I was interested to know if the support was the same in all these municipalities and if the children with ADHD really got the help and support they were entitled to. I discovered that the support varied; in some the children were correctly diagnosed but in others municipalities I was not convince. It became obvious that all municipalities were aware of that children with "messy" behaviour ought to get special professional support. They agreed that the support ought to consist of encoring and strengthening the child’s positive abilities. As well as that the child’s self-confidence ought to be encouraged and situations with a lot of stress, anticipation and changes ought to be avoided. I have working experience of preschool child groups and of children in need of special support and this have given me an extra motivation to research and to learn to know more.
