Abstract [en]


In this survey the authors studied how having a child with Aspergers syndrome affects the

parents. The purpose of this survey was getting a glimpse of the parent’s experiences of

support from governmental instances as well as from their own network. This survey has been

executed from a qualitative point of view. The authors have completed interviews with six

parents of children with Aspergers syndrome. The semi structure of the questions gave the

authors the possibility to perform more freely and to ask follow up questions to get

information. Crises theory and systems theory were the theoretical ground selected for this

survey. These theories were chosen out of thoughts that they would help the author’s to find

an understanding of the parent’s experiences and reflections. Previous research showed in

resemblance to the author’s studies that parents of children with Aspergers syndrome need the

support of their relatives and friends. Results of the studies show a lack in the emotional

support that the parents want from their family and friends. Previous research as well as the

result from this study showed that parents want coordinated assistants from authorities

The result also shows that practical support from authorities like school demands a diagnosis

on the child. Even though the child has been diagnosed some parents experience a lack of

support, especially from school. An example on future research could be a survey how to

improve and develop cooperation between different authorities.
