Abstract [en]

SIRA acts to provide support for children with reading and writing difficulties in their daily school work.

The study's aim to describe the context for SIRA's specialized educational activity. 

The formulated questions should provide answers to which factors that influence SIRA's work, its goals, development, and the distinguished pedagogical approach.

During the research comprehensive interviews were conducted with parties which can influence the way schools operate and provide the necessary support for students. 

Factors that influence the school's operation are analyzed from a ecological development perspective created by Urie Bronfenbrenner. The theory advocates that a student's development and interaction mainly comes from participating in activities, social roles and relations.This constant process of mutual adaptation between the developing individual and its surrounding environment is to be defined as its own entity.

 The result shows that SIRA's practice a special educational operation with focus on an approach which strengthens the student's identity and communicational skills.
