Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
This is an essay about Asperger’s syndrome from a pedagogical perspective. My research question is what is important for a teacher to know about Asperger’s syndrome and why? The essay shows that it is important to be aware that pupils with Asperger’s syndrome might have difficulties in understanding, for instance, social cues and non-verbal language. It also deals with how to use visual methods to teach pupils with Asperger’s syndrome. Both research and examples from novels are used to emphasize individual variations when it comes to the symptoms of Asperger’s syndrome. The essay deals with essential features of Asperger’s syndrome/Asperger’s Disorder such as different social impairments, intense interests and the need for consistency. The discussion alternates between the disorder’s features and events from the novels House Rules and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, which are both novels dealing with Asperger’s.
