English abstract
The aim of the study was to describe the parents' choice of school-placement for their child having a CI, the considerations behind it and the views of the parents and staff on the present and future schooling of their children. The parents of 20 children, their teachers, assistants and itinerant teachers for the hard of hearing were interviewed. Half of the children attended schools for the deaf and the other half regular schools. The most influental background factors affecting the choice were the distance to the school for the dear and the children?s preschool placement. Parents of children in regular schools viewe the school placement in short term perspectives and were prepared to reconsider it if it should not work. Parents of children in the schools for the deaf could alos cinsider a change in schooling although not until their children reached high school. Several of the parents of children in regular classes saw a risk of difficulties in knowledge acquistion as well as in peer relations as their children grew older. Parents who had chosen the school for the deaf considered sign language to be their children?s first language and saw the school placement as promoting both knowledge acquisition and social development of their children.
