I have interviewed six teachers who specialized in teaching pupils with cognitive disabilities. Three of them where educated prior to 1990 and the others were educated after 1990. The ecological systems theory and the theory of learning as social praxis have been used in this study. The main results in this study show that although the specially educated teachers qualified after 1990 who received the new education training program continue educating children who have learning difficulties. It also shows the importance of practical experience whilst teaching pupils with cognitive disabilities during their teacher training. (Less)
