Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
My title is children in need of special support –pedagogues reason about their work and has focus on how eight pedagogues in preschool that I have interviewed define the concept children in need of special support and how they reason about the work with the children who they think are part of the concept. The purpose was to examine how some pedagogues in preschool reason about how they work with children in need of special support. My questions that I have assumed in interviews are;
How do the pedagogues reason about the concept children in need of special support?
How do the pedagogues reason about the daily work with focus on children in need of special support?
How do the pedagogues reason based on the preschools approach about children in need of special support?
My conclusion in this study show, based on pedagogue’s reason, that the concept of children in need of special support is difficult to define because it includes so much, everything from diffuse difficulties to visible disabilities. Furthermore, the pedagogues identified that all children who show some form of difficulty are entitled to support based on their own needs and circumstances. They emphasized on the environment as an important factor in children’s development, because different factors can both enable and disable the development and strive to adapt the environment so that all children can participate based on their abilities. The pedagogues proceed from the individual’s difficulties to adjust the work outside the individual’s needs. A highlight in the pedagogue’s reason is how the environment affects the individual’s development, which I can relate to my perspective, the psychosocial perspective. The starting point in the perspective is how the environment affects the individuals development and how environmental factors affects how several an individual's difficulty will be.
