Children with adhd, what is their needs? : A websurvey with 66 parents' perceptions of their children's needs at home, school and at leisure center (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to find out parents' perception of the needs of their children related to the diagnosis of adhd and how they, the school and the leisure center meet the needs. Through a websurvey where 66 participants participated, we have raised questions about their perceptions linked to the purpose. The result shows that parents of adhd children perceive that their children's needs are directly linked to their impaired ability to control their executive functions. Parents meet the needs by lowering their expectations and keeping routines. Support from the environment is also an important factor in meeting the needs of children. Regarding the school and the leisure center's satisfying children's needs, the views differ from the respondents. Some believe that the school and the leisure center adjust the activities based on the needs of the children, but others say that the staff lack knowledge in their treatment, which leads to the perception that the school and the leisure center do nothing at all. Our conclusion is that knowledge about the diagnosis adhd is a must to be able to work as a teacher and leisure teacher today, because at least one person in each class has adhd.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna undersökning är att ta redan på föräldrars uppfattning om deras barns behov kopplade till diagnosen adhd samt hur de, skolan och fritidshemmet tillgodoser behoven. Genom en websurvey där 66 deltagare deltog har vi  ställt öppna frågor om deras uppfattningar kopplade till syftet. Resultatet visar att föräldrar till barn med adhd uppfattar att deras barns behov är direkt kopplade till deras nedsatta förmåga att  kontrollera sina exekutiva funktioner. Föräldrar tillgodoser behoven genom att sänka sin kravbild och hålla rutiner. Stöd från omgivningen är också en viktig faktor gällande tillgodoseendet av barnens behov. Gällande skolan och fritidshemmets tillgodoseende av barnens behov, går meningarna isär bland respondeneterna. Vissa anser att skolan och fritidshemmet anpassar verksamheten utifrån barnens behov men andra menar att personalen saknar kunskap i sitt bemötande , vilket leder till uppfattningen att skolan och fritidshemmet inte gör någonting alls. Vår slutsats är att kunskap om diagnosen adhd är ett måste för att kunna arbeta som lärare och fritidspedagog idag, eftersom minst en person i varje klass har adhd.
