1.Title: What kind of support does students with dyslexia receive in primary school in Denmark?2. Authors Helle Bundgaard Svendsen, associate lecturer and Ph.d. ([email protected])VIA Learning & Teaching, Centre for research & development, Teacher education, VIA University College3. Purpose:Literacy Technology (LIT = AT for reading and writing) is widely used in Danish schools, but there is limited research on how LIT can be integrated in the schools’ practice, in such a way that students with dyslexia are supported in their academic development and are included in the school context. The aim of the study is to identify the kinds of support students with dyslexia receive in primary school in Denmark, and to investigate how LIT is integrated in the various kind of support. Furthermore, the goal is to let practitioners point out significant developmental areas within the field.4. Method:Twenty-four semi-structured qualitative interviews and document analysis was conducted in twelve municipalities. The selection criteria was: 1) geographical spread, 2) both rural and city municipalities. Interviews: In each of the twelve municipalities, one reading consultant and one reading counselor was interviewed. Document analysis: Guidelines, concerning the support of students with dyslexia in the municipalities were collected and analyzed.5. Results:We expect to be able to identify what type of support students with dyslexia are receiving in the Danish municipalities and schools, and furthermore to point out important factors for further development of the Danish support of students with dyslexia in a school context. These findings are expected to create new grounds for further interventional research with emphasis on the support of students with dyslexia in the Danish school system.
