THE RELEVANCE OF ADHD DIAGNOSIS : - concerning children with ADHD and teaching (English)
Abstract [sv]

Studien belyser uppfattningar om och av barn med ADHD samt uppfattningar av ADHD-diagnosens betydelse för undervisningen. Det empiriska materialet är insamlat genom kvalitativa intervjuer med en fenomenografisk ansats. Urvalet består av fyra personer som på olika sätt har anknytning till skolan. Barn med diagnosen ADHD uppfattas som impulsstyrda, hyperaktiva och att de har koncentrationssvårigheter. En fastställd diagnos kan å ena sidan ses som en fördel då den sätter ord på barnets svårigheter, men å andra sidan kan den även ses som en nackdel eftersom att diagnosen kan ha en viss stämplande effekt. Undervisningen ska vara individanpassad och därför borde inte diagnosen ha någon betydelse för hur undervisningen anpassas efter individens förmågor. Dock råder en oenighet om detta, och uppfattningen är att det är lättare för eleven att få stöd och resurser om det finns en fastställd ADHD-diagnos. Lämpliga stödåtgärder för de här barnen anses vara en liten grupp, för att minska yttre störmoment, eller en assistent som kan hjälpa barnet att strukturera sin skoldag.

Abstract [en]

The study highlights the conceptions of children with ADHD and the conceptions of ADHD diagnosis relevance for teaching. The empirical data is collected through qualitative interviews with a phenomenographic approach. The sample consists of four people who in different ways are related to school. Children with ADHD are perceived as impulse-driven, hyperactive and with difficulties to concentrate. A positive diagnosis can be seen as an advantage because it puts the child's difficulties into words, but on the other hand, it can also be seen as a disadvantage because the diagnosis can have a stigmatizing effect. Instructions are supposed to be individualized and therefore a diagnosis should not have any bearing on how the teaching is adapted to the individual's abilities. However, there is a disagreement on this, and the conception is that it is easier for the pupil to receive support and resources if there is an established ADHD diagnosis. Appropriate-support for these children considered to be working in small groups, to reduce the external disturbance torque, or an assistant who can help them to make their school days more structured.
