Tjejer med autism : Svårigheter och möjligheter i skolan

Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från Malmö universitet/Institutionen för socialt arbete (SA)

Sammanfattning: The aim of this literature study is to examine girls with autism and their school situation in Sweden. The study will therefore look at the girls' difficulties, possibilities and support when within the school environment. The present problem within the study theme is that there is a lack of research when it comes to the subject of girls with autism within the Swedish schools. Previous studies have shown that many students with autism in Sweden do not reach the knowledge goals during primary school and the schools do not adjust enough to the needs of the students with autism. Through using a qualitative method I do a deeper analysis of this specific subject group to see if I can find any reasons behind the problems surrounding them. The results of this study show that the schools do not have enough knowledge about what the diagnosis of autism means, specifically for the girls, or how to handle them correctly. In general the girls feel worse in comparison to the boys with autism when it comes to physical and psychological health. The girls also get less of the type and amount of support from school than boys with autism do. In conclusion I hope to bring awareness of the girls' situation and hope that my study can help encourage further studies about this subject.
