    Employer attitudes toward hiring persons with disabilities: A vignette study in Sweden2015In: Journal of Vocational Rehabilitation, ISSN 1052-2263, E-ISSN 1878-6316, Vol. 43, no 1, 41-50 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: Individuals with disabilities are often far removed from the labour market and research shows that employers’ negative attitudes toward persons with disabilities create a barrier to attaining employment. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to investigate Swedish employers’ experiences and attitudes toward hiring persons with various disabilities. METHODS: A vignette method with accompanying questions was used. A total of 212 employers, who were actively seeking to hire, were recruited via an online employment site and participated in the study. RESULTS: The results indicated that there is some interest for employers to hire persons with disabilities and that this depended on the type of disability a person has. Other results demonstrated that previous experience of employing persons with disabilities was linked to greater interest in hiring, that employers had greater interest to hire than they thought other employers had, and that openness about the disability was deemed as an important factor in the hiring process. CONCLUSION: The novelty of this study is its use of a vignette design to investigate employers’ attitudes in Sweden. Moreover, the results are much in line with international research. This contributes to knowledge and development of increasing employment for persons with disabilities. © 2015 - IOS Press and the authors. All rights reserved.

    Sysselsättning för unga vuxna med intellektuell funktionsnedsättning – boendegeografiska skillnader2016In: Tidsskrift for velferdsforskning, ISSN 0809-2052, Vol. 19, no 3, 241-260 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In countries with highly decentralized welfare services, disparities between municipalities and regions can be expected. The article analyzes whether, and in that case, how, the type of post-school occupation among graduates from Swedish upper secondary school for pupils with intellectual disability (USSID) varies depending on the municipality or geographic region the former pupils live in. The analyses are based on data from a unique national database that includes 12,269 pupils who graduated from USSID between 2001 and 2011. Results show that municipality of residence has an independent effect on the type of post-USSID occupation. Moreover, the total percentages of relocations in the studied population are low.

    The authors conclude that the geographical variations identified in other parts of the Swedish welfare system also apply partly to post-USSID occupations. The article discusses whether municipal and regional affiliation is of particular significance for pupils from USSID, because of their low propensity to relocate.

    Intersectional perspectives on post-school occupation among young adults with intellectual disabilities in Sweden2016In: Journal of Intellectual Disability Research, ISSN 0964-2633, E-ISSN 1365-2788, Vol. 60, no 7-8, 771-771 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: This study explores and analyses, from an intersectional perspective, the association between parents’ country of birth as well as their level of education and their children's type of occupation after graduating from Swedish upper secondary school for pupils with intellectual disabilities (ID).

    Method: This is a quantitative study based on three registers (HURPID, LSS, LISA). The analyses are based on logistic regression, interaction analysis and chi-square tests. The sample size was 12,269.

    Results: Children of less-educated parents tend to have paid employment and children of highly educated parents tend to participate in disability day programs. Parents’ country of birth and level of education affect the former pupils’ post-school occupation in different ways. The association between parents’ country of birth and former pupils’ occupation is modified by parents’ level of education.

    Conclusions: Knowledge and awareness of different background conditions among children graduating from upper secondary school for pupils with ID need to increase.

    I stort sett nöjda, men...: Brukarnas erfarenheter och framtida bedömningar av LSS-insatserna i Laholms kommun2007Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Under hösten 2006 har Högskolan i Halmstad, på uppdrag av Laholms kommun, genomfört en brukarundersökning bland de kommuninvånare som tar del av insatser enligt lagen (1993:387) om stöd och service till vissa funktionshindrade (LSS). De totalt 183 brukarna som oktober 2006 hade LSS-insatser har getts möjligheten att besvara en enkät som berör fler områden av den dagliga tillvaron i Laholms kommun. Undersökningen har både syftat till att ge en nulägesbeskrivning samt en bild av önskningar och farhågor inför framtiden med avseende på de verksamheter som bedrivs på LSS-området i kommunen.

    Den grundläggande och viktigaste poängen med undersökningen är att belysa brukarnas egna upplevelser, erfarenheter och önskningar. En version av enkäten skickades ut till barn och ungdomar under 21 år och en annan sändes till vuxna över 22 år. Huvudresultaten i undersökningen presenteras nedan.

    • Av de totalt 183 utskickade enkäterna inkom 117 svar, vilket ger en total svarsfrekvens på 64 %.

    • Av dem som besvarat enkäterna är 53,4 % kvinnor/flickor och 46,6 % män/pojkar. Vid en uppdelning mellan barn/ungdomar och vuxna ser könsfördelningen ut enligt följande: Barn/ungdom: Flickor: 43,3 %, Pojkar: 56,7 % Vuxna: Kvinnor: 57 %, Män 43 %

    • Respondenternas erfarenheter och upplevelser av innehållet och utformningen av de insatser som man tar del av är över lag positiva. Detsamma gäller den hjälp och det bemötande man fått från flera olika personalkategorier samt det allmänna stödet och servicen i kommunen.

    • Kritiken som framkommer i enkätsvaren gäller främst brister i olika former av information. Kritiken berör både den faktiska förekomsten av information i allmänhet samt innehållet och omfånget av densamma i synnerhet. Kritik framkom även kring de otillräckliga insatser som några ansåg sig ha samt om den avstannade utveckling och snålhet som vissa av respondenterna anser råda i kommunen.

    • Särskilt i enkätsvaren från barn och ungdomar tecknas en bild av en relativt utbredd ensamhetsproblematik i kommunen. Hela 44,4 % i ålderskategorin 0-21 år säger att man inte har några vänner som man träffar och att man för det mesta är ensam.

    • De närmaste 5-10 åren behöver barnen och ungdomarna insatser som man inte tar del av idag. Detta gäller särskilt insatserna daglig verksamhet och boende för vuxna. Bland önskemålen inför framtiden återfinns små gruppbostäder, egna lägenheter och kooperativa boenden.

    • De närmaste 5-10 åren behöver de vuxna brukarna insatser inom de insatser som man tar del av idag. Man vill helt enkelt ha mer av de insatser som man har idag. Önskemålen gäller såväl boende som sysselsättning och övriga insatser.

    Upper secondary school – and then?2012In: Journal of Intellectual Disability Research, ISSN 0964-2633, E-ISSN 1365-2788, Vol. 56, no 7-8, 709-709 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    AIM: The purpose of the study is to increase the knowledge about the transition from school to working life for pupils with intellectual disabilities. In addition the purpose is to identify factors which may play a role in strengthen their position on the labor market.

    METHOD: The first study is quantitative and based on the cross classification of a newly created register combined with two Swedish national registers. The statistical identification highlights the situation of all students who left upper secondary school for pupils with intellectual disabilities, during the period 2001-2011. The first study includes more than 17 000 people with intellectual disabilities.

    RESULTS AND CONCLUSIONS: At the time for the conference we will be able to present descriptive data for e.g. how many individuals who have passed upper secondary school between 2001-2011, how many who are in the daily activity programs and how many who have ordinary jobs outside daily activity. We will also be able to describe the situation based on factors such as differences between regions and municipalities, between the sexes, and between different upper secondary school programs, etc.

    Post-School Destination—A Study of Women and Men With Intellectual Disability and the Gender-Segregated Swedish Labor Market2016In: Journal of Policy and Practice in Intellectual Disabilities, ISSN 1741-1122, E-ISSN 1741-1130, Vol. 13, no 3, 217-226 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Knowledge about people with intellectual disability (ID) and their connections to the labor market is scarce. The aim of this study was to describe and analyze the entry into and representation in the Swedish labor market for people with ID, discussed with a special focus on the gender perspective. This study included 2,745 individuals (30% women and 70% men) who graduated from Swedish upper secondary schools for pupils with intellectual disability (USSID) in the 2000s, and who were defined as employees in 2011. Graduation data from 2001 to 2011 were analyzed in relation to employment data from 2011 and adjusted for gender, graduation year, and educational program. Results show that men who attended a national USSID program and graduated between 2001 and 2006 were the most likely group to have a job. The authors conclude that the gender differences in the Swedish labor market are more clearly pronounced among women and men with ID in relation to employment rate, wage levels, and professions than in the general population. Education, welfare-services, and interventions specifically targeted to meet the needs of people with ID have to develop in more gender-sensitive ways. © 2016 International Association for the Scientific Study of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities and Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

    New labour market - old gender roles: working life after school for young adults with intellectual disability in Sweden2014In: JARID: Journal of applied research in intellectual disabilities, ISSN 1360-2322, E-ISSN 1468-3148, Vol. 27, no 4, 373-373 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: Taking a gender perspective, this study explores and analyzes the labour market situation for 2745 gainfully employed men and women with an educational background in the Swedish upper secondary school for pupils with intellectual disability (ID).

    Method: This quantitative register study is based on the cross-classification of a newly created register and a two additional Swedish national registers. The analyses are based on logistic regression and chi-square tests.

    Results: Those who are employed after upper secondary school for pupils with ID are 70.8% men and 29.2% women. Both the road to work and the situation at work differs between men and women. Small private companies are the main employers in general, and for women the public sector is also a major employer. Men and women are mainly employed in traditionally “male” and “female” occupations. Also, salary levels and additional support from the welfare system differs between the sexes and within the different educational programs.

    Conclusion: Traditional gender roles of the labour market are clearly manifested among the people included in the study. Questions about the gender structure of the Swedish labour market and the impact of educational background on wage labour will be discussed.

    Post-school options for young adults with intellectual disabilities in Sweden2015In: Research and Practice in Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, ISSN 2329-7018, Vol. 2, no 2, 180-193 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to examine life after school for young adults with intellectual disabilities in Sweden. It identifies a snapshot of the post-school destination in 2011 of students of Swedish Upper Secondary Schools for Pupils with Intellectual Disability (Special Secondary Schools), who graduated between 2001 and 2011. This national registry study used personal identification numbers to link data for about 12,269 former students in the Halmstad University Register on Pupils with Intellectual Disability with data about labour market participation and service provision under the Swedish disability legislation (Swedish LSS Act, 1994). Results showed that the largest proportion (47%) of former students participated in disability day programs, known as “daily activities”; 22.4% were employed, most with some type of wage subsidy; and 6.6% participated in various types of further education programs. A sizeable group (24%) were described as being “elsewhere”, not engaged in employment, education, or disability day programs. The type of post-school occupation is associated with gender, the type of educational program undertaken at secondary school, and age. The authors found a high risk of young people with intellectual disabilities falling through safety-net welfare or post-school participation provisions. Even in a country such as Sweden, which has comprehensive post-school programs, almost a quarter of young adults with intellectual disabilities were socially excluded, without education, disability day programs, or employment. © 2015 Australasian Society for Intellectual Disability

    Upper secondary school – and then?: About young adults with an educational background in the upper secondary special school and the transition to work2013In: NNDR2013 – 12th Research Conference Nordic Network of Disability Research: May 30–31, 2013 in Turku, Finland: Abstract Book, Turku: Finnish Society for Disability Research , 2013, 17-17 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this ongoing study is to identify and analyze former pupils ́ relationship to the labor market after the graduation from the Swedish upper secondary school for pupils with intellectual disabilities. The study includes 10,517 former pupils who graduated between 2001-2010 and describes the former pupils ́ relation to the labor market as it was in 2010. The study is based on the cross classification of a newly created register combined with two Swedish national registers from Statistics Sweden and the Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare. One of the preliminary results from this study is that the assumption, presented in media as well as in previous research that the majority of the current pupils are going directly from school to the municipal or private organized daily activities do not seem to match reality. Our results indicate that 48% of the total population were in daily activities in 2010 and 20% of the total population were defined as “in paid work” during the same year and the actual picture of what the former pupils do after they have graduated from upper secondary school for pupils with intellectual disabilities is much more complex than the assumed. Analyses on the current data that are carried out at the moment will be presented at the NNDR-conference.

    Vågar lite mer: Studerandes erfarenheter av längre folkhögskolekurser riktade till personer med utvecklingsstörning2010Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Specialpedagogiska skolmyndighetens (SPSM) övergripande uppdrag är att alla ska få möjlighet att nå målen för sina studier och för sin utbildning. Myndigheten arbetar med olika insatser och stöd för att fullgöra detta uppdrag. Den här rapporten handlar om folkhögskolor som får vissa statsbidrag från myndigheten, för att ge stöd till att personer med funktionsnedsättning ska kunna studera där. Myndigheten har till uppgift att följa upp och utvärdera effekter av de statsbidrag som ges.

    Den här rapporten handlar om betydelsen av studier på folkhögskola för personer med utvecklingsstörning. Det är deltagarnas egna erfarenheter och bedömningar av kursernas påverkan på kunskapsutvecklingen, sociala relationer, personlig utveckling och effekter för sysselsättningen som är i fokus. Intervjuer har genomförts med personer som studerar och med personer som tidigare har studerat på folkhögskola.

    I rapportens inledning redogörs för folkbildningens och folkhögskolornas grundläggande karaktär och uppdrag. Några slutsatser som studien visar på är att de studerande är nöjda med sina studier och att den personliga och sociala utvecklingen är i centrum. De flesta har sysselsättning inom daglig verksamhet efter genomförda studier. En slutsats som redovisas i studien är att folkbildningen har betydelse för att öka förutsättningar till ett aktivt liv i gemenskap med andra. Studien pekar även på behov av ökade och fördjupade studier av folkhögskolors betydelse för personer med utvecklingsstörning.

    Research initiation based on idea-circles: from research object to co-actor2012In: Disability & Society, ISSN 0968-7599, E-ISSN 1360-0508, Vol. 27, no 6, 879-882 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article details an evaluation of a research project based on participatory research methods organized by the Swedish Disability Federation from 2008 to 2011. In Sweden there has been a lack of productive dialogue with the traditional academic world and the question was raised whether proposals for future research would be different if disabled people formulated them. Nine idea-circles with disabled participants and invited researchers from fields of interest close to the participants produced ideas, developed out of the life experience of being a disabled person. These ideas were developed into 72 research drafts that often reflected key advocacy areas, rather than operationalized research issues. The adjustment from the familiar discourse of political struggle to discussion of research was a complicated process for many. When asked to prioritize among areas for research, the representatives from the disability movement chose areas that are not stressed in mainstream disability research in Sweden. © 2012 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.

    Levnadsvillkor idag och jämförelser med 1990-talet: En studie om barn, unga och vuxna med utvecklingsstörning och autism samt vuxna med förvärvad hjärnskada i Halmstad kommun2010Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Högskolan i Halmstad har på uppdrag av Halmstad kommun undersökt levnadsvillkoren för barn, ungdomar och vuxna med utvecklingsstörning och autism samt vuxna med förvärvad hjärnskada. Genom enkätstudier, en enkät som vänder sig till föräldrar till barn och ungdomar och en som riktar sig till vuxna, har en bild av livssituationen inom olika områden för dessa grupper tagits fram. I studien jämförs resultaten i viss utsträckning med levnadsvillkor för befolkningen i övrigt. Framförallt ställs resultaten i relation till motsvarande undersökningar för samma grupp från år 1991 respektive år 1995.

    Det relativa handikappbegreppets framväxt och etablering: Rapport om förutsättningar för det relativa handikappbegreppets tillkomst och etablering i Sverige2009Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Marie-Lousies arbete med att försöka analysera förutsättningarna för och etableringen av det relativa handikappbegreppet handlar om frågor som när begreppet lanserades, varför det etablerades och hur den processen såg ut? I den analysen framträder några betydelsefulla faktorer.

    Det handlar om att välfärdsstatens utveckling och de ekonomiska förutsättningarna för att kunna och vilja rikta intresse och resurser mot de handikappade, en av samhällets mest utsatta grupper. Det handlar om en samhällsradikalitet som också får utrymme i handikapprörelsen, främst i Anti-handikapprörelsen. Ytterligare faktorer är inspiration från den internationella utvecklingen på området och forskningens bidrag. Förutom dessa vill vi också peka på betydelsen av enskilda personers kamp.

    Ett sätt att förstå utvecklingen och etableringen av det relativa handikappbegreppet är att ta sin utgångspunkt i enskilda funktionshindrades erfarenheter och vilja att leva ett normalt liv. Funktionshindrade och deras anhöriga som utifrån vardagserfarenheter kämpat för bättre levnadsvillkor, delaktighet och behovsanpassat stöd. Deras möte med ett medicinskt dominerat samhälle, som såg handikapp som personlig brist, väckte kamp för förändring. Denna kamp i vardagen uppmärksammas så småningom och resulterar efter ett tag i ett nytt handikappbegrepp. Under tiden begreppet etableras sker förändringar i verkligheten. Jämför med utveckling av ideologi som tar avstamp i en verklighet som förändrats när ideologin utvecklats. En fråga man slutligen kan ställa är i vad mån det individuella, medicinska synsättet kommer, i takt med den genetiskt-biologiska vetenskapens framsteg, att återta sin position till den ställning den fullständigt dominerande som den hade vid denna rapports början? Det finns en del tecken på det i slutet av 2000-talets första decennium.

    After upper secondary school: Young adults with intellectual disability not involved in employment, education or daily activity in Sweden2018In: Scandinavian Journal of Disability Research, ISSN 1501-7419, E-ISSN 1745-3011, Vol. 20Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    There is limited knowledge about young persons with intellectual disability who are Not in Employment, Education or Daily activity (NEED) in Sweden. The aim of the study was to explore the post-upper secondary school situation for persons with intellectual disability not involved in traditional occupations. A national database containing 2955 persons, representing 24.1% of the total (N=12,269) was used. The results revealed a heterogeneous group where financial support was common and few made use of disability services. Gender, municipality, programme type, financial support and disability services were significantly associated with not having an occupation as opposed to being in employment, education or daily activity. Time was a central factor, as the early years after upper secondary school appear to be an important period for changing NEED status. This is the first large scale study to describe these persons not involved in traditional occupations in Sweden and further research is required.

    Self-advocacy in Sweden - impact on identity and social relations2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: In recent years an increased number of adults with intellectual disability in Sweden have been organized in self-advocacy groups since they no longer accept the perceived subordinate role as a disabled person in society. The aim of this study was to gain an understanding of the importance of being a member in a self-advocacy group and what impact it had on the members' daily life, relationships, self-determination and identity.

    Method: An interpretative approach was used to analyze data from interviews with 26 participants in four different groups. The semi-structured interviews were supplemented with eight interviews conducted with support workers, focus-group interviews, observations during meetings and document reviews.

    Findings: The findings suggest that the participants' engagement in a self-advocacy group is meaningful in several but varies ways. An improved life-situation consisting of strengthened control in every-day life and increased self-confidence are of great importance, but equally important is the perceived possibility to help others and make a difference in their lives. Self-advocacy is primarily understood in terms of achieved independence and social connections within the group, but also as influencing outsiders' attitudes.

    Conclusions: The self-advocacy movements indicate a significant change in society and are important for the target group as well as for shaping future support and treatment.

    A study of pupil’s experiences of their everyday life in the Swedish upper secondary special school - “särskolan”2012In: Journal of Intellectual Disability Research, ISSN 0964-2633, E-ISSN 1365-2788, Vol. 56, no 7-8, 708-708 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: The Swedish educational system consists of parallel types of schools. Besides regular compulsory school and upper secondary school another type of school exists in Sweden, referred to as “särskolan”. This is a special school intended for pupils with intellectual disabilities. The primary aim in this thesis is to increase the knowledge about pupil’s experiences of their everyday life in “särskolan”, with regard to the specific school organizations. The experiences of belonging to “särskolan” and perceptions about their identity- and knowledge development have been studied. Furthermore has the pupil’s preparation and perceived possibilities for adulthood been highlighted.

    Method: The schools were selected based on a questionnaire survey which aimed to study the variation that exists regarding the organization of upper secondary special schools. By participant observations and interviews with 14 young women and 12 young men at five different schools, the inside perspective have been focused/studied through an interpretive approach. 

    Results: The ongoing analysis of the results indicates that the pupil’s perceive advantages as well as disadvantages belonging to “särskolan”. A majority phrase injustice in the school system and differences can be seen in their experiences derived to a gender perspective.

    Conclusions: Conclusions will be announced during the presentation

    I en klass för sig eller i klass med alla andra: grundskoleplacerade särskoleelevers upplevelser av sin skolvardag2008Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    De allra flesta eleverna med särskoletillhörighet frå sin undervisning i särskolans egna klasser men en betydande andel, drygt 20 % av grundsärskolans elever, är placerade i grundskolan och får sin undervisning där. I många kommer ökar andelen grundskoleplacerade elever som är mottagna i särskolan, men kunskapen om hur denna undervisningsform fungerar är bristfällig. Syftet är att nå en ökad förståelse för och kunskap om hur elever tillhörande särskolan, som helt eller delvis är placerade i grundskolan, upplever sin vardag i skolan.

    Rapportens empiri består av fem fallstudier av elever mottagna i särskolan i högstadieålder som får sin undervisning i grundskoleklass. I denna studie ligger fokus på elevernas egna upplevelser och erfarenheter av skolvaradagen.

    Utifrån det empiriska underlaget har fyra relativt olika sätt att organisera undervisningen på kunnat urskiljas.

    Livssituationen för unga vuxna med lindrig utvecklingsstörning - en kunskapsöversikt baserad på skandinavisk forskning 1998 - 20092009Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Bakgrund till kunskapsöversikten:

    Högskolan i Halmstad har på uppdrag från Stockholms läns landsting, Handikapp & Habilitering, sammanställt en kunskapsöversikt om livssituationen för unga vuxna med lindriga intellektuella funktionshinder (utvecklingsstörning).

    På senare tid har livssituationen för unga vuxna med lindriga intellektuella funktionshinder (utvecklingsstörning) uppmärksammats alltmer, såväl nationellt som internationellt. I Sverige har detta bland annat berott på den markanta ökningen av elevantalet i särskolan sedan 1990-talets mitt och erfarenheter från fältet som tyder på att förekomsten av sociala problem bland unga med lindriga intellektuella funktionshinder har ökat. Internationellt diskuteras gränsdragningen för när en utvecklingsstörning ska anses föreligga. Vidare förs diskussioner om lindrig utvecklingsstörning och förekomsten av social problematik som kriminalitet, missbruk, ensamhet och ekonomiska problem liksom beteendeproblem och psykiska problem.

    Begreppet livssituation är ett omfattande och brett begrepp som behöver avgränsas och förtydligas. I föreliggande kunskapsöversikt ingår i begreppet livssituation följande livsområden: medborgarskap, delaktighet och upplevd tillhörighet, bemötande och attityder, självbestämmande och inflytande, identitet, sociala relationer samt beteendemässig- och social problematik.

    Med unga vuxna avses i kunskapsöversikten personer i åldern 15 – 35 år. Andra avgränsningar som gjorts är att det är forskning som genomförts under åren 1998 – 2009 och som avser förhållanden i Skandinavien, det vill säga Sverige, Norge och Danmark, som presenteras. Tids- och resursmässiga skäl motiverar ovanstående avgränsning samt, som kommer att framgå, skillnader i definitionen av gruppen, vilket gör det problematiskt att jämföra grupper som definieras olika i olika länder.

    Mot bakgrund av skillnader i definitionen och den ökade kategoriseringen av människor med intellektuella funktionshinder innehåller kunskapsöversikten också ett inledande avsnitt om (lindrig) utvecklingsstörning, avseende terminologi, definition och klassifikation samt förekomst.

    Begreppen personer/människor med utvecklingsstörning och personer/människor med intellektuella funktionshinder används synonymt i kunskapsöversikten. Huvudsakligen har vi i kunskapsöversikten valt att använda det/de begrepp som varit förekommande i de olika studierna. Vi är medvetna om att valen av begrepp inte alltid sammanfaller med Socialstyrelsens rekommendationer avseende terminologianvändandet inom området.

    Self-advocacy in Sweden—an analysis of impact on daily life and identity of self-advocates with intellectual disability2017In: Cogent Social Sciences, ISSN 2331-1886, Vol. 3, 1304513Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Self-determination and the ability to express opinions and preferences are fundamental to all people. Some people with intellectual disability no longer accept a subordinated role as disabled and new self-advocacy groups have evolved. The aim of this study was to analyse the meaning and importance of engagement in a self-advocacy group for self-advocates daily life and identity. An interpretative abductive approach was used to analyse data from interviews with 26 self-advocates from six self-advocacy groups in Sweden in relation to the theoretical concepts; recognition, social capital, culture capital and self-determination. The key finding is that the vast majority of the participants experienced a changed self-perception, as more skilled, social and confident people, depending on group affiliation, their personal engagement and positions within the group. The conclusion is that self-advocacy is important for daily life and identity of people with intellectual disability. The self-organized movements indicate an important change in society and the results are of importance not only for the target group but for shaping future support and treatment from society of people with intellectual disability. © 2017 The Author(s).

    Från traditionell omsorg till inflytande och delaktighet – en utmanande process. Utvärdering av 172 projekt med målgruppen personer med intellektuell funktionsnedsättning som under perioden 1994–2011 fått ekonomiskt stöd av Arvsfonden2014Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    På uppdrag av Arvsfonden har Högskolan i Halmstad genomfört en utvärdering av 172 projekt med målgruppen barn, unga eller vuxna med intellektuell funktionsnedsättning (utvecklingsstörning). Projekten har under perioden 1994–2011 fått bidrag till verksamhet för ett, två eller tre år. Enligt Arvsfondens kriterier främjas verksamhet av ideell karaktär och ges i första hand till föreningar som driver projekt som syftar till nyskapande och utvecklande verksamhet. Brukarna ska involveras i projektet och medel ska inte lämnas till verksamheter som faller under offentliga huvudmäns ansvar, om inte särskilda skäl finns.

    Gemensamt för projekten har varit att man på olika sätt velat förändra och förbättra livssituationen för målgruppen. Majoriteten av projekten har varit treåriga, medan typ av och inriktning på aktiviteter och genomförande har skiljt sig åt mellan projekten. Projekten har drivits av nationella och lokala funktionshinderorganisationer, studieförbund och stiftelser, och har en stor innehållsmässig spännvidd. Information till och om personer med intellektuell funktionsnedsättning, utveckling av stöd- och utbildningsinsatser, fritidsaktiviteter och teknikstödsutveckling är exempel på projektens huvudsakliga inriktningar.

    Projekten har analyserats via dokumentstudier av samtliga 172 projekt, enkätsvar från 73 av projekten, 7 fallstudier samt intervjuer med Riksföreningen för utvecklingsstörda barn, ungdomar och vuxna (FUB) samt handläggare på Arvsfonden. Syftet med utvärderingen har varit att tillvarata de erfarenheter och kunskaper projekten gjort och att öka kunskaperna om vilka spår projekten lämnar och betingelserna för deras fortlevnad, vilka möjligheter och hinder de stött på och att analysera projektens betydelse och effekter för målgruppen. De viktigaste slutsatserna av utvärderingen kan beskrivas så här:

    • Arvsfondens projektmedel möjliggör utveckling av nya aktiviteter, nya verksamheter och framtagande av nytt informationsmaterial som delvis inte skulle ske utan denna finansiering.

    • En mindre andel av projekten kan bedömas som nyskapande i den bemärkelse att de genomfört något som inte prövats någon annanstans förut.

    • De flesta projekt har någon grad av brukarinflytande, men det är ovanligt att målgruppen har inflytande över hela projektprocessen. I huvudsak deltar målgruppen som mottagare av projektets insatser.

    • Ett fåtal projekt, särskilt bland de yngre projekten, kan anses ha verkliga ambitioner till empowerment. Det som utmärker dessa projekt är att brukare tydligt har involverats i alla projektets alla faser.

    • Majoriteten av projekt vänder sig till personer med intellektuell funktionsnedsättning oavsett begåvningsnivå. De som har en särskild inriktning fokuserar framför allt på personer med lindrig intellektuell funktionsnedsättning.

    • Några få projekt har ett tydligt genusperspektiv. Det är mycket sällsynt med projekt som riktar sig till personer med utländsk bakgrund.

    • Sett över tid har fler projekt under senare år karaktären av att kompensera för brister i samhällets lagstadgade stödinsatser. Gränsdragningen mellan det offentligas ansvar för verksamheter och utvecklingsarbete och föreningars ansvar är otydlig. Cirka en femtedel av alla projekts verksamheter kan betraktas som något som tydligt faller under samhällets lagstiftade ansvar.

    • I vilken utsträckning projektens verksamheter och aktiviteter lever vidare efter avslutat projekt är svårbedömt med tillgänglig information. Av de totalt 172 projekten kan fortlevnaden tillförlitligt3bedömas för mindre än hälften (73 stycken), dvs. de som besvarat enkäten och/eller ingår i de fördjupande fallbeskrivningarna. De flesta av dessa projekt har enligt projektägarna lämnat någon slags spår/effekter efter sig. Verksamheter och erfarenheter som gjorts i projekten lever vidare i någon form i nära hälften av fallen. Knappt var femte projekt var vid besvarandet inte avslutat och en lika stor andel lämnade icke tillförlitliga svar. Cirka vart sjätte projekt hade inte lämnat några spår.

    • Det finns en oklar gränsdragning mellan utveckling och forskning, vilket medför att en del forskningsverksamhet finansieras av Arvsfonden.

    • En kritisk punkt i projektprocessen är att den kunskap och lärdom som utvecklats i projekten har svårt att nå ut och spridas, eftersom det ofta saknas kanaler och resurser efter projekttidens slut.

    • Erfarenheter och lärdomar som projekten gjort har identifierats, för att i högre utsträckning framöver finansiera projekt som uppfyller kriterierna om nyskapande och brukarmedverkan samt utveckling av verksamhet som inte faller under det offentligas ansvar. Gemensamt för de framgångsrika projekten är att de bygger på god kunskap om det område de sökt pengar inom, de har tydliga och realistiska målsättningar, använder adekvata metoder, har kunniga projektledare och är inriktade på områden som har relevans för personer med intellektuell funktionsnedsättning. Därutöver bidrar en seriös brukarinvolvering och en öppenhet för och reflekterande över misslyckanden, där man lär sig av erfarenheterna till framgångsrika projekt. När det gäller att nå ut med kunskap som utvunnits ur projekten är en framgångsfaktor att man är en etablerad organisation med upparbetade nätverk och kontaktvägar.

    A welfare state in transformation – effects on people with intellectual disability in Sweden2016In: Canjiren Yanjiu, ISSN 2095-0810, no 1, 4-9 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Ideologically propelled by the Normalization Principle the Swedish policy and service system for people with intellectual disability has since the 1960th undergone drastic changes like deinstitutionalization and decentralisation of services to the local municipalities. This paper aims to analyze experiences of the Swedish welfare system and later year’s changes and reforms in respect to people with intellectual disability. Based on a description of different types of welfare models, Swedish policy and laws and the transformation of the welfare system, an analysis and discussion follow based on current research knowledge about major trends in practice and everyday life for people with intellectual disability. Special focus is on the greater variation in support and services, increasing self-advocacy, the impact of 20 years with a right-based law and on the increasing marketization of disability services in relation to quality of services and outcomes for people with intellectual disability.

    Decentralisation, variation and categorization – The current state in Sweden2009Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The responsibility for support, services and education for people with intellectual disability was decentralised to the local authorities in the beginning of the 1990ths. During the main part of the last 20 years the development in Sweden was dominated by economic problems. The new disability legislation 1994, evaluates to have neutralized the deteriorations that the economic /financial problems of society could have brought for the living conditions of people with intellectual disabilities. At the same time the development was denoted by a change from a passably /rather equivalent national situation for people with intellectual disabilities to a greater variation at the local level.

    Factors such as organization, economy and political government at the local level, together with an increased stress on the capacity of the individuals to look after their own interests, have resulted in the growth of differences in living situation and living conditions. The local authorities finished the deinstitutionalisation in the beginning of 2002. In addition to that, an increasing political interest of private entrepreneurship in the field of disability and a rise of categorization of children and youth as intellectual disabled has occurred. Categorization has first been noticed in special programmes at school but recently also in daily activities for people of a working age. The rise of categorization can be linked to a change to medical and individualistic based explanation of disability, which has opened up for growth of segregated activities. Examples of resistance against categorization and segregation among young people with intellectual disabilities are noticed. Empowerment by self- organized groups is a new trend.

    In conclusion, the development in Sweden can be described as small steps towards normalization as a consequence of deinstitutionalisation along with a greater variation of living conditions due to decentralisation. At the same time an increased categorization has markedly expanded the group which counts as intellectual disabled.

    Education and support for people with intellectual disabilities in Sweden: policy and practice2015In: Research and Practice in Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, ISSN 2329-7018, Vol. 2, no 2, 116-125 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In Sweden, the normalisation principle has been important behind reforms like deinstitutionalisation and the provision of services within the community for people with intellectual disabilities. The aim of this collection of articles about Swedish disability policy and practice across the life course is to give a research-based examination of the current situation for people with intellectual disabilities. This introductory article gives an overview of the provision of education and support systems for people with intellectual disabilities in Sweden today, and highlights the current trends and challenges faced by these people. The paradox of increasing self-advocacy and at the same time increasing categorisation is discussed, as well as the discrepancies in service provision. Comparisons of similarities in, for example, marketisation between the Australian National Disability Insurance Scheme and the Swedish rights-based legislation should be useful for knowledge and development in both countries. © 2015 Australasian Society for Intellectual Disability

    Abstract [sv]

    Sverige är ett mångkulturellt samhälle. Efter att länge ansetts som ett av världens mest etniskt homogena länder har vi under de senaste 40 åren omvandlats till ett mångkulturellt och pluralistiskt samhälle. För de invandrare och flyktingar med familjer som kommit till Sverige har det varit förknippat med betydande utmaningar att komma till ett nytt land och anpassa sig till det svenska samhället. Att assimilera sig till nya förhållanden, språkliga och kulturella, och samtidigt förhålla sig till sitt ursprung är en balansgång. Att dessutom ha en funktionsnedsättning eller ha ett barn med funktionsnedsättning kan betraktas som speciella svårigheter. Denna särskilda utsatthet, att både ha ett annat etniskt ursprung och ha ett funktionshinder, kan ses som en dubbel utsatthet.

    Resistance, identity of resistance and empowerment among people with intellectual disabilities2008Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim:  The concept of empowerment is often used to describe how individuals or groups try to establish control over their own lives. This study describes how a project “for” participants with intellectual disabilities changed into an empowerment-based project, a change initiated from below by participants who began to investigate how internalised oppression affected their lives and personal identities. Method:  Freire (1972) used the phrase “the wisdom of the oppressed” to emphasise the importance of the “power from within” discriminated and oppressed groups themselves. Through continuous observations and interviews over a three year period with participants and project leaders, we have been able to follow the development of the project.  Results and Conclusion:  Our conclusion is that: project activities are not enough; any real change must come from below and include processes of challenging and changing dominating discourses. We also argue for that an empowerment-based approach would give discriminated participants an opportunity to resist societal labelling as mentally retarded and to define their own personal identity.

    Self-advocacy: organization and resistance in Sweden2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: In the last decade, young adults with intellectual disability (ID) have begun to self-organize in order to increase power over their own lives and remove barriers to their social participation in society. This study aimed to further understand the new forms of self-advocacy in Sweden by describing and analyzing 1) the characteristics and organization of the movement and its activities; 2) the influence of membership on self-identity, self-determination, social relationships and daily life; and 3) the influence of the movement on social attitudes and services to people with ID. Method: A national mapping exercise identified more than 60 self- advocacy groups. Case studies of four organizations, selected to reflect organizational diversity, were conducted using interviews, focus-groups, observations and document review. Results: Despite variability in organizational form and size, self-advocacy groups have an important impact on the lives of their members and have mounted resistance to society’s views and treatment of people with ID and the traditional ways of delivering services. Conclusion: The new self-advocacy movement in Sweden is beginning to influence the way Swedish society regards people with ID, and reshape support services to enable greater service user control.

    Abstract [en]

    During the 1990s a new law appeared in Sweden regarding individual rights and disability. The responsibility to provide support and services such as education for persons with intellectual disabilities became decentralized to the individual municipalities and an end came to institutionalisation. In the meantime, community development was dominated by economical problems and activities within the education-, healthcare-, and social services- areas became increasingly performed under privatised management (though the public sector still accounted for the absolute majority of the financing). It has been noted that living conditions for persons with intellectual disabilities are today similar to those in the 1990s. At the same time, developments point to changes where despite similarities in the situation for persons with intellectual disabilities there are increasing variations in living conditions within the group. Factors such as choice of organisation, economical conditions, political governance etc on a local level have together with an increased emphasis on the individual’s ability to communicate and argue for their best interests led to local and individual differences in living conditions and living situation. Deinstitutionalisation happened in the beginning of the 2000s and since then there has been a steady increase in group homes and day care centres in the private sector. During the past 15 years there has been a marked increase in the number of children and young adults being categorised as intellectually disabled. This paper aims to discuss the development in Sweden for persons with an intellectual disability, partly as a process from relative similarity to increased variation, partly as a process where “normality” is diminishing and categorisation is increasing.

    Långsiktiga effekter?: Personer med funktionsnedsättning och deras etablering på arbetsmarknaden med stöd av Supported Employment – En uppföljning ur arbetstagarperspektiv2015Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Personer med funktionsnedsättning arbetar i lägre utsträckning än personer utan funktionsnedsättning. Att komma in på arbetsmarknaden är svårt och att stadigvarande etablera sig är särskilt problematiskt för de som lever med en intellektuell eller neuropsykiatrisk funktionsnedsättning. Med stöd av Supported employment-metoden erbjuds stöd för att underlätta arbetsmarknadsinträdet. Forskning och uppföljning visar att metoden är relativt snabb och framgångsrik i att bistå personer med funktionsnedsättning till arbete men att det saknas studier som visar om etableringen på arbetsmarknaden är hållbar över tid. Syftet med denna studie är att öka kunskapen om deltagarnas erfarenheter av Supported employment och hållbarheten i arbetssituationen två år efter avslutat stöd. Genom intervjuer med 20 slumpmässigt utvalda deltagare (av 419 aktuella) och deras arbetskonsulenter, varav 14 vid intervjutillfället fortfarande var i arbete, erhålls erfarenheter som pekar på betydelsefulla faktorer för hållbarhet, vilka kategoriseras som a) klientens egenskaper och förhållningssätt, b) arbetskonsulternas betydelse och stöd, c) arbetsgivarnas inställning och attityder samt d) samhällets bemötande. I rapporten ställs och diskuteras studiens resultat och slutsatser i relation till tidigare kunskap på området.
