To challenge and adapt? : An interview study with staff of the daycare center of people with Asperger’s syndrome (English)
Abstract [sv]

Personer med autismspektrumtillstånd tillhör gruppen som ökat mest inom insatsen daglig verksamhet. Då insatsen tillkom utformades den främst efter personer med utvecklingsstörning eller med stora fysiska funktionshinder. Syftet med studien är att undersöka hur daglig verksamhet är anpassad efter personer med Aspergers syndrom. Utifrån intervjuer med personal på daglig verksamhet visar resultaten på att daglig verksamhet fungerar bra och är anpassad efter individuella behov. Samtidigt visar resultaten på att en utveckling av daglig verksamhet behövs men upplevs svår att genomföra. Slutsatserna är att det kan vara svårt att anpassa en verksamhet efter personer med Aspergers syndrom då de inte alltid beskriver vilka behov de har, att behov kan se väldigt olika ut individer emellan samt att deras förmågor kan ses som både styrkor och svagheter. En slutsats är även att arbetet med målgruppen bör kompletteras med arbete utifrån en samhällsnivå för att en utveckling mot en anpassad verksamhet ska möjliggöras.

Abstract [en]

People with autism spectrum disorders belong to the group that has increased most within the daycare center. At the introduction, the daycare center was primarily designed for people with intellectual or major physical disabilities. The study's purpose is to examine how daycare center activities are adapted for those with Asperger’s syndrome. Interviews with daycare center staff show that the activities function well and are adapted for individual needs. However, the results also show that a development of the activities is needed but believed difficult. The conclusions are that it seems to be difficult to adapt activities for people with Asperger’s syndrome since they not always describe their needs, that their needs may be very individual, and that their abilities can be seen as both strengths and weaknesses. Another conclusion is that the work with the target group should be complemented with work at a community level, to enable development towards adapted activities.
