Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to investigate student-environment fit and perceived need of adjustments for students in the regular upper secondary school, with and without a diagnosis. The students (n=419) were interviewed with the assessment School Setting Interview. The resultsshowedthat for seven of the 16 items, 60% or more of the students experiencedthat the demands of the school environment were not consistent with their abilities. Girls had a greater need of adjustments in eight of nine SSI school activities. The findings put an emphasis on the importance of recognising the student´s individual’s need of adjustments, and on offering flexible support in order to enhance the student-environment-fit and well-being of students in need of special educational support.
