Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to analyze the phenomenon of “electronic bullying”, and furthermore to describe how this phenomenon is perceived by teenage girls with language disorders in combination with autism spectra.


The conclusions and result from this study is derived from six in-depth interviews, thereof four being with girls with autism spectra diagnosis and all but one diagnosed with language disorder in addition (referred to as main respondents). The two reminding girls neither had language disorder nor autism spectra (referred to as comparing respondents). They were added to the study for the purpose of comparing their experiences and descriptions of those with language disorder and/or autism spectra diagnosis. For interpretation and analysis of study result, I have applied the method of phenomenology.


The study’s main respondents had own experiences in the area of electronic bullying, albeit their level of knowledge of the subject were very limited and they had problems to interpret information given. The comparing respondents had a high knowledge level related to the subject. They had both been actively informed about bullying/electronic bullying at their respective schools at theme days and during normal class hours. Common denominator for both groups is that bullying/electronic bullying commonly is normally group oriented, but could also be targeting the individual.


All respondents experienced that the possibility to be anonymous and acting at a distance, were very evident and drivers for people being electronic bullies. Common for the main respondents was the difficulty to interpret written information at the computer screen and their meeting when posted on the internet and/or on cell phone. Furthermore, they all considered that it was rather by chance you became an object for bullying; it was basically enough just to be different.
