Abstract [en]

This study aims to develop knowledge of different professional groups and their views on inclusion and collaboration concerning "students in difficulty." Through qualitative interviews and a quantitative survey, the researcher sought answers to this and also how inclusion, through collaboration between different professional groups, can develop in school.The results of the study have been analyzed according by Nilholms (2007) three different perspectives on special education: The critical perspective, the compensatory perspective and the dilemma perspective. The results were also analyzed based on Ahlberg's (2013) communicative – relationship perspective.The result shows that the concept of inclusion is not clearly defined either in the governing documents or among the interviewees. This makes it difficult to speak the same language in school, which complicates the work of inclusion. Since the governing documents are unclear and somewhat contradictory when dealing with "students in difficulty" educators are put in a dilemma. It is on the one hand about the importance of early identification and remedy difficulties and on the other hand not to categorize students. Another concern is on the one hand to see differences as opportunities for learning and on the other hand that all students should attain the curriculum objectives. Students should at the same time feel good and happy at school. The result also shows that the cooperation that existed around "students in difficulty” has been minimal at schools. In contrast, all interviewees’ see good cooperation as crucial to the quality of work with students. Surprising facts is that it seems to be easier to see and talk about what others should do to improve together than to see one’s own part in the work for development. One conclusion is also that the majority of the respondents see the economic foundations are setting up barriers by time, room, materials and resource shortages, and also large classes.
