Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper is to increase the knowledge and understanding, of how pupils with intellectual disabilities, partly attending upper secondary school, experience their participation during school. This paper is composed by two case studies for which the empiric material has been collected through interviews with former students and their teachers, a couple of years after graduating. The students and their teachers have all been placed at the same school, called “Bruket”.The studie also seeks out to find factors that contribute to experienced participation, and reveal factors that don´t. This is important because there aren´t many studies that focuses on individually intergrated pupils during secondary upper school, and their experiences. And it is important to take notice of these factors and to the debate of inclusion and the building of a school for all. The results show that one pf the students, Susanne experiences less participation due to Brukets incapability to diverse the education, and only offer Susanne teaching in seclusion. The other student, Jens on the other hand, experienced a greather deal of participation because of his capability to adapt to the schools organization. The results of this studie indicates that faciliating factors to experiensed participation is safe relationships with adults working at Bruket, dedication to school and social skills and skills to adaption in behaviour. Barriers to participation in the studie, are formal legitimacy to upper secondary school, intergration perspectives and teachers compensating students for their disabilities.
