Previous Research on music and children diagnosed with Asperger syndrome.

Karlstad University Sweden/University of Eastern Finland

The focus of the poster is to summarize previous research on music and children diagnosed with Asperger syndrome in order to create a theoretical background for ethnografic studies in the subject. Searching for and reading/processing recent research articles about music with children with Asperger syndrome will be the first step. Articles about related studies such as music with children with diagnoses within the autism spectrum and music with adults diagnosed with Asperger syndrome or autism spectrum disorders will also be used for reference. Using Wing’s triad of impairments, social interaction, communication and imagination, the results from previous research will be organized in categories. Areas within these three impairments that are positively effected through various types of musical interventions will be defined. This will be the starting point for the ethnografic study of the meaning of music for children diagnosed with Asperger syndrome - a comparative study in two cultural and institutional settings.

Expected findings are that there is no previous research on children with Asperger syndrome and music. Abundant research material about music and children within the autism spectrum shows positive results which illustrates the need for additional research regarding children with Asperger syndrome and music. The study which will be conducted in Sweden has relevance to Nordic educational research as the Swedish Education Act of 2011 states that children with autism and Asperger syndrome no longer have the right to attend the special program for pupils with intellectual disabilities. Thus these children are now to be educated in regular classes. This places high demands on teachers who for the most part lack the knowledge and experience required for successful learning for the pupil with Asperger syndrome. Hopefully the research will produce new knowledge that can be helpful in using musical intervention as a special educational tool, more effectively and consciously, for inclusive education for children with Asperger syndrome. The network for classroom research and ethnographic studies and/or inclusive education are suitable for the presentation.
