This study examines factors in school that could contribute to or counteract the experience of inclusion of persons who have been diagnosed in the field of autism spectrum disorder. The information was gathered through qualitative interviews and processed to be presented in the results.The results show that respondents found it difficult to concentrate when in school because of the environment. They experienced no coherence in learning situations, they may not get answer as to why information should be carried out and saw no point to have breaks. Furthermore, they experienced no problems to orientate in school or to follow the schedule. The results also revealed that the respondents had at least one teacher with whom they felt that the relationship was positive. During the interview sessions, it emerged that it is essential that the teacher is involved and empathetic. Regarding groups experienced men that small groups were the optimum while women wanted larger groups. The women also felt that men were easier to associate with. Finally, it emerged that all of the students had experienced exclusion, bullying and often had a poor self-image. Their experience regarding the diagnosis is better understanding of others but also
that it reinforced the sense of being different.The discussion dealt with educational implications as to our results. From these results are drawn conclusions how schools should be organized to
promote inclusion.Keywords: autism spectrum condition, diagnose, inclusion, self-image.
