The current study examined whether screening resulted in adolescents with reading and writing disabilities receiving adapted teaching in their ordinary classes, and by that reaching the national goals for theoretical school subjects. The teaching staff at one school filled in a questionnaire about supportive teaching methods and assistive technology and to what extent those were used. Four students aged between 13 and 15 were interviewed regarding the same issues, but also about self-concept along with expectations and feedback from teachers. Screening results and prognosis of grades were studied as well. The study showed that there were students, identified as having difficulties in reading and writing, that didn’t reach the national goals. Other findings suggest that the teachers need to become more aware of supportive teaching methods even if they were well on their way. Further education in how to use assistive technology is also recommended.
