Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to investigate if the class teachers believe that their education has given them enough knowledge about dyslexia in order to succeed a successful education for these pupils. It will present what four class teachers and two special education teachers has answered what they know about dyslexia. The study aims to find out if class teachers believe that they have enough knowledge to determine whether a pupil has dyslexia. If they have knowledge of appropriate methods and if they know how to prevent that pupils fall behind in their literacy and also what factors they believes makes it problematic to implement a literacy for these pupils. I propose the following questions:

  • Do the class teachers consider that their education has given them sufficient knowledge of dyslexia and its characteristics?
  • What methods does the class teachers and special education teachers considers as useful for pupils with dyslexia?
  • What does the class teachers consider can prevent that pupils with dyslexia fall behind in their reading and writing skills?
  • What factors consider class teachers and special education teachers is problematic to to succeed a reading and writing education for pupils with dyslexia?

This study is based on a qualitative method and my theoretical approach is based on Høien and Lundberg established view of what dyslexia is. The results show that teacher’s university studies do not provide sufficient knowledge about dyslexia and appropriate methods. This problem is also described in the research I have used. Attributed to this it is obvious that class teachers have enough knowledge what dyslexia is and they could tell which methods that are good to use. They could also declare how to prevent that pupil’s with dyslexia fall behind in their reading and writing education. This means that a teacher in grade F -3 has sufficient knowledge to be able to implement a teaching adapted for pupils with dyslexia.
