Our aim with this study is to create an understanding of how parents of children and young people with neuropsychiatric diagnoses experience cooperation and response from and between schools and authorities. Research show that cooperation can be successful, but that the path is often problematic. Although there is a collective responsibility in society of children's well-being, research show that there is a shift in responsibility of the children's problems from the different parties in which the responsibility often fall solely on parents. Another aspect that appears in earlier research is the parents' great need of support in their situation that is described as chaotic. The study is of qualitative sort and is based on interviews that consist of questions with an open character. The result has been analyzed with the help of previous research and theory of street-level bureaucrats (Lipsky), stigma (Goffman) and the idea of field, habitus and capital (Bourdieu & Passeron). Our result largely reflect previous research. From the parents perspective the school is perceived as the biggest concern. According to them the problem lies within a lack of knowledge and lack of an individual perspective. The parents express a desire for a greater cooperation, increased knowledge within authorities and schools, as well as an increased understanding of neuropsychiatric diagnoses and furthermore help and support in the early stages. Ultimately the parents have a desire that authorities, school and family frequently pursue a mutual dialogue where the character of the encounter is paramount.
