Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to give an increased knowledge of how students with dyslexia experience the counselling they received in regard to further studies and future work in connection to the transition from compulsory education to upper secondary school. As well as what is perceived as the most optimum process of counselling given from the needs of the student. Furthermore, there was an interest for a greater understanding of how student counselling work with dyslexic students and what knowledge the student counsellors have about this hidden disability. Qualitative interviews were done, both with students with dyslexia as well as student counsellors working for the years of compulsorily education. The interviews showed that students had not received what to them was an adequate and optimum guidance in regard to their needs. Much like the research found in connection to dyslexia the students note that their own self-esteem and self-worth in regard to the schoolwork lessens along the way. Something that is found to be reassuring is that the student counsellors interviewed say that there are no limitations for dyslexic students when it comes to choose of studies as long as they get proper support and adaptation after their needs. 

Abstract [sv]

Studiens syfte är att få en ökad kunskap om hur elever med dyslexi upplever den studie- och yrkesvägledning de fick i samband med övergången mellan grundskola och gymnasium. Och vad de anser är den optimala vägledningsprocessen utifrån deras behov. Vidare var en ökad kunskap om hur studie och yrkesvägledare arbetar med elever med dyslexi och vilken kunskap vägledarna har om denna dolda funktionsnedsättning av intresse.

Kvalitativa intervjuer genomfördes med både elever som har dyslexi och Studie- och yrkesvägledare på grundskolan. Intervjuerna visade på att eleverna inte har erhållit för dem adekvat och optimal vägledning utifrån deras behov. Precis som i den forskning vi fann rörande dyslexi så påpekar eleverna att självkänslan och självförtroendet rörande skolarbete får sig många törnar efter vägen. Det som känns uppmuntrande är att vägledarna vi intervjuade säger att det finns ingen begränsning för dyslektiker i val av program om de får rätt stöttning och anpassningar utifrån deras behov.
