Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Asperger syndrome is part of the autistic spectrum disorder. The most characteristic feature of it is difficulties in the social ability. These difficulties are a result of not having practised the proficiency in that area. The aim of this study is to describe and analyse how teachers discuss and interact with pupils diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome and to find out what resources are used. The aim of this study is not to perceive true knowledge of the syndrome itself, but to find out how teachers interact with pupils who have Asperger’s syndrome. A method for date collection used is qualitative interviews. A total of eight teachers have been interviewed. The results of the interviews show an awareness of the syndrome. Teachers have observed the different needs of the pupils and express that more resources and more education within this field are needed to meet the pupils in the discussion in a better way.
