Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to examine the differences and similarities between coping strategies used by individuals with the disability ADHD in childhood and later adulthood. The questions we asked ourselves: Are the individuals using the same form of coping in adulthood as in childhood? What copingstrategies used individuals while growing up? What coping-strategies used the individuals in adulthood? To fulfill the purpose and answer the questions, we used qualitative methods. Interviews were conducted with four adults who have the disa-bility ADHD. The interviews were analyzed by the hermeneutic circle. The theoretical framework we have chosen to give a clearer picture are Coping. Through the result and the analysis in this study, it is found that the interviewpersons used same forms of copingstrate-gier in adult age as in childhood. The only difference in copingstrategier found is a reduction in the use of confrontational coping.
