In Finland, as well as in the other Nordic Countries, special educational support should be offered pupils in an inclusive way in regular classroom settings. Co-teaching between regular- and special education teachers is one possible way to develop inclusive education. In this systematical literature overview benefits and drawbacks for students in co-teaching education settings have been analyzed. Thirteen articles were identified and analyzed. The benefits are improved learning results, improved social well-being, improved interaction between pupils with and without special educational needs and improved teacher attention. One central drawback was increased interaction between students with special educational needs and the regular teacher. The analyzed studies are overall from countries outside the Nordic region and the results indicate a need for more Nordic research in the field.
