Interviews with Parents of Children with Diagnosed Deficits of Partial Functions – Clusters
The basis of our multidisciplinary project “Impact factors in the dynamics of educability of children in need of special education support measures“ is the qualitative designed complementary research concerning the educability dynamics at children and pupils in need of special education. The aim of the investigation was to determine the attitude of parents towards the diagnosis of their children and to focus on the problems of families with children suffering from a deficit of partial functions, as well as on the cooperation with specialists and the school and the ways of tackling the education difficulties of these children. The method chosen for data collection was a participative interview. Verbatim analysis was used to isolate semantic units that could be clustered into following categories: demonstrated symptoms, diagnosis,the need of patience, approach to the child/interventions, evaluation of the counselling assistance, evaluation of the approach of the school/teachers, interaction with schoolmates, siblings/family,perspectives.
