Children´s perceptions and understanding of their dyslexia : A study about children´s views on their dyslexia diagnosis (English)
Abstract [sv]


This act is about how five children with dyslexia consider and understands their diagnosis. It is also about their self-image, future sights and about how their school life is compared with before they got their diagnosis. The study is implemented autumn 2011 on a medium-sized school in central Sweden. The survey was implemented through interviews with the five children, of which four was girls and one was a boy. The study shows that the children understand their dyslexia relatively well, but that they experience that it is bothersome to live with dyslexia. Their school work is going better after that they got a diagnosis, because of more help from the teacher. The children's self-image is experienced as quite low when it comes to their schoolwork, and relatively high as regards other things like their hobbies.
