Abstract [en]

The main purpose of the study is to examine different factors that have impact on a child's access to special support from a special educator's perspective. What needs and challenges are prominent in preschool linked to children in need of special support? What role does the special educator have on the basis of the needs and challenges in the preschool? The method we used when we conducted our material for this study was a qualitative research approach. The empirical data has been collected through interviews with eight special educators and the answers were analyzed through systems theory, the individual perspective and the relational perspective. The main result of the study shows that the individual perspective is the prominent approach managing special support in preschools. It has also shown that there is a need of the special educator guiding educators to shift focus to the relational perspective in order to create an including environment in preschools. The prominent results in the study regarding needs has shown to be difficulties of mapping special support, lack of communication and handling children who acts out. The prominent results of challenges have been the lack of time for educators in preschool to reflect on their own role in the change to the relational perspective and to get the emotional support and guiding from a special educator.
