Children with ADHD-diagnosis : A Study of Definitions and Treatments (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med min studie är att undersöka vilka erfarenheter pedagoger som arbetar eller har arbetat i förskoleklass har om diagnosen ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). Syftet är också att undersöka hur de förhåller sig till barn med diagnosen. Metoden jag använt mig av är kvalitativa intervjuer som jag gjort på tre stycken pedagoger. Denna metod valde jag för att jag ansåg att den mest passade till det jag ville undersöka och få fram. Som i detta fall är definitioner om ADHD samt bemötande. Resultatet av studien visade att svårigheter med uppmärksamheten var ett kännetecknande drag för diagnosen. Samtliga pedagoger tyckte även att impulsivitet och koncentrationenssvårigheter sågs som definitioner också. Samspelet med andra barn sågs även det som en svårighet som framkom i resultatet. Att vara tydlig i sitt bemötande, använda sig av egna scheman till barn med diagnosen tyckte alla pedagoger var bra. Att vara extra tydlig. Att ha goda relationer med barn med diagnosen sågs också som en viktig aspekt.    

Abstract [en]

The aim of my study is to examine which experiences pedagogues, who work or who have worked in pre-school class, have with the diagnosis ADHD (Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder). The aim is also to examine how they relate to children with the diagnosis. The method I used was qualitative interviews with three pedagogues. I chose this method because I thought that it was the most suitable for what I wanted to examine and find out, which, in this case, are definitions for ADHD and treatments. The result of the study shows that difficulties with attention is one characteristic feature of the diagnosis. All pedagogues also thought impulsivity and concentrations difficulties were seen as definitions. Interacting with other children was also seen as a difficulty, which appeared in the results. Being clear and consistent when interacting and the use of own schedules for children with the diagnosis, all pedagogues thought was good. Being extra clear. Having good relations to children with the diagnosis, was also considered an important aspect.
