Abstract [en]

More and more people in our society take part in adult education. In this study, eight students in adult education, the majority with a diagnosis such as ADHD and/or reading- and writing disorders/dyslexia,have been interviewed about their current study situation. The interviews have so party treated topics related to earlier schooling and the future. Earlier studies and available literature is to a large extent written from the perspective of children’s and adolescents’ study situation and the question is if this is applicable to students in adult education. In different policy documentsit is pointed out that it is necessary to take disabilities into account, andin a recently published commission report regarding municipal primary level adulteducation (SOU 2013:20), it was argued that a more individual-based perspectiveis needed. In the current study it becomes clear that the individual students’ needs are specific and that the support from teachers of special education or general teachers is of importance. The factors which the interviewees especially mention are the need for individualization, treatment and time. For some of the students, the pace is too slow, whereas others need additional time as well as reading in their spare time.
