    Abstract

    On the basis of the professional literature, we discovered that teachers, special and rehabilitation teachers, and also the other professional workers within the teamwork recognize various advantages of the teamwork. Most of the professional workers recognize the advantages of teamwork for students with special needs, professional workers, and educational institution. However, everybody does not realize its importance. By realizing the importance of the recognized advantages of the teamwork, they positively influence the efficiency of educational work and motivation for further teamwork. All the professional workers should be made aware that teamwork regarding the students with special needs is an efficient approach with numerous positive influences for the students with special needs, for the professional workers and educational institution. In the research part of the master’s thesis we studied: which advantages of the teamwork in the elementary school are recognized by the teachers and which by the special and rehabilitation teachers in working with students with special needs, what is the relationship between self-awareness of the efficiency of the team and recognizing the advantages of the teamwork in working with the students with special needs, what is the relationship between self-awareness of the efficiency of the team and the number of years of service in the field of education within the work with students with special needs, what is the relationship between the type of education and evaluation of the efficiency of the teamwork in working with the students with special needs, what is the relationship between the number of years of service and the experiences with teamwork in working with the students with special needs, what is the relationship between the number of years of service in the field of education and recognizing the advantages of the teamwork in working with the students with special needs, and what is the relationship between the frequency of performing various stages of teamwork and self-awareness of the efficiency of the team in working with students with special needs. In the pattern, we included 150 surveyed professional workers (teachers, and special and rehabilitation teachers). In the research, we used our own survey questionnaire with three content sections. By means of the research, we ascertained that in recognizing the advantages of the teamwork in working with students with special needs there are no statistically significant differences between the teachers, and special and rehabilitation teachers, and that only a few professional workers, who evaluate the work of their team as successful, recognize several advantages in working with students with special needs, in comparison to those professional workers who evaluate the work of their teams as inefficient (depending on the advantages). It is an interesting fact that professional workers with more years of service do not evaluate the work of their team as more efficient, in comparison to professional workers with fewer years of service. Additionally, we ascertained that in self-awareness of the efficiency of the team in working with students with special needs, there are no statistically significant differences between the teachers, and the special and rehabilitation teachers, and that professional workers with more years of service have more experiences with the teamwork in working with students with special needs, in comparison to the ones with fewer years of service. The professional workers with more years of service recognize no more advantages of the teamwork in working with students with special needs, as the ones with fewer years of service, which shows that all the professional workers – regardless of the years of service – realize the importance of the teamwork. However, the professional workers, who carry out the stages of the teamwork (team planning, team implementation, team evaluation) in working with the students with special needs more often, evaluate the work of their team as more efficient in comparison to those professional workers who carry out the stages of the teamwork less often – this was expected, of course.
