In the study, all interveiw people collectively are referred to as educators. Initially, the thesis provides definitions, a background and a review of previous research.The theoretical staring includes the socio-cultural theory.Through the socio-cultural perspective, a good picture of what you can see on the use of compensatory aids and learning. The result shows that the municipality school is lacking a plan on how the process of ICT for pupils with dyslexia should proceed. Furthermore, it shows that the compensatory aid for students in reading and writing are used in very low extent and is limited to a few tools. One explanation for this may be the lack of knowledge of educators. The teachers in the study reveal a great deal of ignorance in the field of ICT and this may explain why the tools not are used more widely.
