Abstract [en]

The aim of this paper was to describe hindering and facilitating factors in the transition from upper secondary school and employment for a person with Asperger’s syndrome. In the process we used general systems theory and made semi-structured interviews with five persons in the network of institutions and associations working with the individual. Our findings showed that the hindering and facilitating factors were basically the same depending of the environmental adjustments. The interviews highlighted the following factors: the recent general unemployment rate in Sweden, selfawareness of the individual and the surrounding environment’s knowledge of the individual’s impairment in relation to Asperger’s syndrome. The highlighted factors were discussed in relation to the regular labour market for a person with Aspergers syndrome after secondary upper school at the levels of micro-, meso- and macrosystem.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med detta arbete var att beskriva hinder och framgångsfaktorer i övergången mellan gymnasiet och arbetslivet för en person med Aspergers syndrom. I vårt arbete använde vi oss av systemteori och gjorde kvalitativa intervjuer med personer ur organisationer och instanser som arbetar kring en person med Aspergers syndrom. Vi fann att de hinder eller framgångsfaktorer intervjupersonerna identifierade som viktiga var samma saker beroende på omgivningens anpassningsförmåga Återkommande faktorer de la vikt vid var den stora arbetslösheten i Sverige idag och att det var viktigt att individen med diagnosen samt dess omgivning hade kunskap om individuella problem kopplade till diagnosen. Vi diskuterade detta i relation till att komma ut på den reguljära arbetsmarknaden för en person med Aspergers syndrom efter gymnasiet på mikro- meso- och makronivå.
