Detta har undersökts i en kvalitativ studie med deltagande observationer som metod. Fem deltagare deltog i studien. Under sammanlagt tio tillfällen använde deltagarna först pappersbilder sen en kommunikationsapp i en Ipad för att begära olika föremål. Resultatet visade att båda hjälpmedlen fungerade som stöd deltagarnas kommunikation och att de använder Ipaden och pappersbilderna på samma sätt för att kommunicera.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to investigate how pupils in a special training school communicate with digital tools and paper images. The specific research question was in what way paper images and the Ipad communication app Widgit Go could support pupils in their communication. The method used involved qualitative participant observation on two occasions with five different pupils. In all, ten observations were conducted where the participants first used paper images followed by the Ipad app to request certain objects. The results showed that both tools supported the communication of the participants and that the app and the paper images were used in a similar manner to communicate. The paper imageshowed advantages by directing the attention of the communication towards the receiver. The Ipad app showed advantages by decreasing the risk for misunderstandings in the communication.
