Abstract

This study can be used as a tool and base for teachers that are, or will be, working with students diagnosed with autism. Important to add, all students are unique individuals and the school needs to adapt the education to every student’s individual need.

 

The purpose with the study is to investigate if after-school facilities in the Karlstad region are adapted to children with autism and which methods are used to give the students valuable time at the facilities. To achieve this purpose, three major issues need to be answered: What rights to help and support, does students with autism have in the after-school facilities? What adjustments need to be performed by the after-school facilities to be able to effectively support students with autism? Do the after-school facilities in central Sweden live up to the regulations in “Läroplan för grundskolan, förskoleklassen och fritidshemmet”?

 

The study was performed by qualitative interviews with two respondents from different schools, were each respondent has work experience in the area. The result shows that the after-school facilities are not adapted to children with autism; the lack of financial resources seems to be the main reason. Further, none of the investigated after-school facilities have a specific way of working to further help students with autism. Teachers gets, if desired, regular education within the subject autism. The respondents highlight the importance of experience and an eager to work with the students, even though the financial resources aren’t always there.
