Abstract [sv]

Transsexualism innebär en upplevelse av att det juridiska könet inte stämmer överens med könsidentiteten och följs ofta av en önskan om att korrigera sitt kön så att det överensstämmer med det upplevda. Rösten är en identitetsmarkör och utgör en betydande aspekt av könskorrigeringen. Denna studie utgjordes av en enkät riktad till 24 verksamma röstlogopeder samt 49 personer i könskorrigeringsprocess i Uppsala-Örebro sjukvårdsregion. Enkätstudien ämnade undersöka transsexuella personers upplevda behov av logopediska insatser och i vad mån de tillgodoses, vilka kunskaper logopederna upplever som nödvändiga, faktorer som kan försvåra arbetet samt behandlingsinnehåll. Ett ytterligare syfte var att jämföra resultaten från föreliggande studie med de resultat som framkom i studien av Andersson och Aronsson (2008)  som kartlade logopediskt omhändertagande av transsexuella i norra regionen. Resultaten visade att de transsexuella respondenterna i stor utsträckning upplevde röstproblem, få hade haft logopedkontakt och en stor andel av dem som inte hade träffat logoped ville göra det. Information från vården till personer i könskorrigeringsprocess, angående logopedens roll, var otillfredsställande. Större delen av de personer som hade haft logopedkontakt hade åtminstone i någon mån fått tillräcklig logopedisk hjälp. Resultaten visade även att kunskap om könskorrigeringsprocessen och transrösten är nödvändiga vid behandling av patientgruppen och brist på kunskap och erfarenhet kan utgöra hinder i behandlingen. Behandlingsinnehåll och antal behandlingstillfällen varierade mellan logopeder. Kunskap om hur röstbehandling av transsexuella går till var skiftande bland logopederna i studien. Få logopeder hade tagit del av vårdprogrammet för transsexuella och intresset för vidareutbildning var stort. Resultaten i föreliggande studie visade liknande tendenser som studien utförd av Andersson och Aronsson (2008).

Abstract [en]

Transsexualism is an experience of the legal sex not matching the gender identity and is often followed by a desire to correct one’s gender so that it is consistent with the perceived. The voice is an identity marker and represents a significant aspect of gender reassignment. This study consisted of a survey of 24 active speech-language pathologists as well as 49 individuals in gender reassignment process in the Uppsala-Örebro Health Care Region. The questionnaire aimed to examine transgender individuals experienced need of speech therapy, and to what extent they are met, what knowledge speech therapists perceive as necessary, factors that can complicate the work and treatment content. A further aim was to compare the results from the present study with the results obtained in the study by Andersson and Aronsson (2008) who mapped the logopedic treatment of transsexuals in the northern region. The results showed that the transgender respondents largely experienced voice problems, few had had speech-language pathologist contact and a large proportion of those who had not met a speech-language pathologist wanted to meet one. Information from health care to individuals in gender reassignment process, regarding the speech-language pathologist’s role, was unsatisfactory. Most of the people who had had a speech-language pathologist contact had, at least to some extent, got sufficient logopedic help. The results also showed that knowledge of the gender reassignment process and trans voice is necessary in the treatment of the patient population and the lack of knowledge and experience can be an obstacle in the treatment. Treatment content and number of treatment sessions varied between speech-language pathologists. Knowledge of voice treatment of transsexuals varied among the speech-language pathologists in the study. Few speech-language pathologists were familiar with the health care program for transsexuals and interest in further training was great. The results of the present study showed similar trends as did the study conducted by Andersson and Aronsson (2008).
