Internet - a place where you don’t have to be different. : A qualitative internet research about people with Asperger syndrome, about difficulties and possibilities that they meet in the constructed society. (English)
Abstract [en]

This study is based on a qualitative internet research about people with Asperger syndrome and their thoughts and opinions about the difficulties that occurs in the environment outside the home and their experiences of Internet. We have analyzed Internets social influences for those with Asperger syndrome, as a consequence of the difficulties that they meet in other environments. The constructed communities in the environment outside the home and the social interaction that occurs there is not adjusted for those with the diagnosis. This leads to difficulties to be there for those with Asperger syndrome. By doing a content analysis of the assembled data from a community site on the Internet, we found out that the environment on Internet is more comfortable for those with the diagnosis in several ways. A lot of people who earlier felt alone and excluded has thanks to the Internet been able to develop a healthy social life.

Abstract [sv]

Den här uppsatsen grundar sig på en kvalitativ internetstudie om personer med Asperger syndroms tankar och åsikter om svårigheter som de möter i miljön utanför hemmet och erfarenheter av internet. Vi har analyserat hur internet har påverkat de med Asperger syndrom socialt, till följd av svårigheterna som de möter i andra miljöer. De konstruerade mötesplatserna i miljön utanför hemmet och den kommunikation som sker där är inte anpassad för de med diagnosen, vilket har lett till att de med Asperger syndrom har svårt att visats där. Genom att göra en innehållsanalys av material från ett diskussionsforum på internet, har vi kommit fram till att internets miljö tilltalar de med diagnosen på flera olika sätt. Flera personer som tidigare känt sig ensamma och utanför har tack vare internet kunnat utveckla en god livskvalitet.
