Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
This study aims to investigate how schools work with dyslexic pupils and to understand how they are approached in education by their teachers. The purpose is also to distinguish, from a teacher’s perspective, what type of difficulties dyslexia represents. The main interest is to investigate if there are any differences in what the research says about dyslexia and how it is perceived by teachers who are working with dyslexic pupils. The method of gathering information in this essay is based on interviews with regular teachers who have Swedish and English as their main subjects, as well as interviews with special education teachers. This is combined with examining research on the topic. A set of schools driven by the municipality in Kalmar were chosen for this essay, which restricts the number of interviews. This essay concludes that the interviewed teachers provided a successful education for dyslexic pupils. A successful concept was to provide computers to dyslexic pupils to assist and alter their learning process.
