    Abstract

    To successfully integrate children with special needs many conditions must be met and for full integration inclusion is very important. In Slovenia there are many documents which are related to education of children with special needs. Teachers and other pedagogical professionals should quickly recognize problems of their students and offer appropriate support. The team work between teachers and special education teachers is also very important for children's development. For successful integration professional development of special education teachers is also important and there are many factors which promote professional development. The main purpose of our research was to find out what the expectations of special education teachers are about cooperation with teachers, who have children with special needs in their class. Also, our research discovered positive and negative sides of such team work. We also asked which the positive and negative sides of teaching in one or more schools were. Furthermore, we discovered which factors of professional development affect special education teachers. Empirical quantitative research included 40 special education teachers from different places in Slovenia; also their working experience was different. We used a survey questionnaire and after that we statistically processed the data. We found out that special education teachers often cooperate with teachers who have children with special needs in their class and that time work is important. They value important professional work. Many factors of professional development (stated in the questionnaire) influence special education teachers’ professional development.
