Abstract [sv]

Studien är gjord i form av en kvalitativ studie där syftet är att genom berättelser från personer med Aspergers syndrom förstå vilken betydelse just detta funktionshinder kan ha för skolgången. Studien bygger på livsberättelser från en kille och en tjej som beskriver sin syn på sitt funktionshinder samt vilka svårigheter och möjligheter de har stött på under skolåren. I studien redovisas även relevant litteratur om Aspergers syndrom och olika metoder samt strategier läraren kan använda sig av i undervisningen. Dessa metoder och strategier kan bilda en grund för strukturering och planering av skoldagen och skolmiljön så att eleverna får det stöd deras funktionshinder kräver och sina behov mötta. Resultatet visar att tydlighet och struktur är viktiga delar för personer med Aspergers syndrom. Vidare visar resultatet att skolan har svårt att anpassa undervisningen, materialet och miljön efter respondenternas funktionshinder. Slutsatsen av studien är att det behövs mer kunskap om vilka svårigheter elever med Aspergers syndrom upplever i skolan och vardagen. Vi valde att skriva om detta ämne för att vi personligen vill få större kunskap om hur vi som pedagoger kan stötta elever i behov av särskilt stöd.

Abstract [en]

This is a qualitative study where the objective is to give the reader an understanding of how people with Aspergers syndrome experience their disability and their time in school by listening to two peoples stories. The study is built on the stories of a boy and a girl who describes their view of their disability and the difficulties and possibilities they have encountered during their years in school. The study also brings up relevant literature about Aspergers syndrome and the different methods and strategies the teacher can use in the education. These methods and strategies can form a base for structuring and planning the school day and the school environment so the pupils can get the support their disability demands, and get their needs met. The result shows that directness and structure is important parts for people with Aspergers syndrome. Further more the result shows that the school has difficulties to adapt the education, material and environment for the respondents disabilities. The conclusion of the study is that more knowledge, about the difficulties pupils with Aspergers syndrome faces in every day life and in school, is necessary. We chose to write about this subject because we personally want a bigger knowledge of how we as educationalists can support pupils in need of special support.
