Tänk om hon ville leka titt ut?: En essä om olika förutsättningar till kommunikation hos barn med flerfunktionshinder
Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
My essay begins with a story in which I portray different communicative situations at the preschool unit Myran. The children in my story are at an early stage of development and they all suffer from multiple disabilities which inhibit their ways of communicating. Through my story, I describe how I perceive different communication dilemmas in my work place. A difficulty I cover in my essay is how the educator knows if he or she has interpreted a child correctly when it does not have a verbal communication and therefore is completely dependent on the educators’ interpretations of its communication efforts. The purpose of my essay is to demonstrate the educator´s role in communication, and I want to highlight how children with multiple disabilities communicate. I also want to investigate how important communication is in a child´s learning process. The question I ask myself is how the communication between an educator and a multiply disabled child looks like and also what nature of communication is. The method I use is the essay form where my reflection takes up a large part. In my reflection I start from my experience-based story and by making use of literature addressing various theories of communication, I arrive at the conclusion that the educator has a decisive role for developing a child´s communication skill.
