AbstractWorking with students who have ADHD are today common in Swedish schools. Approximately 2-3 students per class have been diagnosed with ADHD and require greater demands on their teachers. The pupils have to be included and get the opportunities to develop in the way that suits the students best. The pupils themselves should not have to adapt to the school, it is the school that has to adapt to the pupils. The purpose of this paper is to examine how PE teachers work with students who have ADHD as they need to have adults around them that have insights on their special needs. Through interviews with six PE teachers in southern Sweden I have investigated what skills they have, how they work with these students and what kind of education they are offered. The result is interesting because it shows that the teachers do not have any special skills to work with students with ADHD, but they still manage their work very well because of the basic teaching skills they possess. Despite the good education which they engage, the knowledge about this diagnosis should increase among the teachers. It is vital for the student that their teachers may help them to the best schooling situation as possible.
