    Health, functional capacity, formal care, and survival in the oldest old: a longitudinal study2008In: Archives of gerontology and geriatrics (Print), ISSN 0167-4943, E-ISSN 1872-6976, Vol. 46, no 1, p. 1-14Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    There are surprisingly few longitudinal studies of the oldest old, but these studies are of high importance because the number of oldest old continues to increase in most countries and because of the uniqueness in this population. The aims of this study were to investigate how health, Activities of Daily Living (ADL), and use of care change over time in the oldest old and to seek how differences in health and ADL affect survival of the oldest old. The study was longitudinal in design, and the participants were interviewed by trained nurses. A group of 300 persons was randomly selected from three age-groups; 86, 90, and 94. For the first phase, in 1999, 157 persons could and wanted to participate; from these 98 persons continued to participate in the second phase and 62 in the third. Repeated Measures (GLM) from the oldest old showed a decline in objective health and ADL functioning with increasing age, but subjective health remained positive and stable. The use of formal help increased with age, and once the oldest old entered the old-age care system, it was rare that they returned to independent living. Analysis using a Cox regression model showed that health and ADL functioning significantly predicted survival, but age did not.

    Working Sandwich Generation Women Utilize Strategies within and between Roles to Achieve Role Balance2016In: PLoS ONE, ISSN 1932-6203, E-ISSN 1932-6203, Vol. 11, no 6, article id e0157469Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Increasingly, women simultaneously balance the roles of mother, parental carer and worker. However, individual role balance strategies among these working ‘sandwich’ generation women have not been thoroughly explored. Eighteen women combining these three roles were interviewed about their individual role balance strategies. Findings were identified through the framework analysis technique, underpinned by the Model of Juggling Occupations. Achieving and maintaining role balance was explained as a complex process accomplished through a range of strategies. Findings revealed the women used six within-role balance strategies: living with integrity, being the best you can, doing what you love, loving what you do, remembering why and searching for signs of success. The women also described six between-role balance strategies: maintaining health and wellbeing, repressing perfectionism, managing time and energy, releasing responsibility, nurturing social connection and reciprocating. These findings provide a basis for health care providers to understand and potentially support working ‘sandwich’ generation women.

    Moskéer - fara eller frihet?: En innehållsanalys av motstånds- och stödrörelser för moskéer och böneutrop i Sverige2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Det finns idag en ganska omfattande samhällsvetenskaplig litteratur om lokala och nationella protester mot planer på moskéer och böneutrop i västvärlden. Men det finns endast få studier som uppmärksammar växelverkan mellan sådant motstånd och olika former av stöd för muslimers religionsutövning. För att belysa rörelsernas retoriska inramningar analyseras ingresser till svenska namninsamlingar, Facebookgrupper och Facebooksidor. Innehållsanalysen visar bland annat att retoriken inte begränsas till praktiska lokaliseringsfrågor utan handlar i högsta grad om det svenska samhällets framtid. Moskéer utgör här viktiga symboler där de antingen representerar ett hot eller ett samhälle baserat på mänskliga rättigheter.

    Hur många kön finns det i världen?: En kritisk diskursanalys av Socialstyrelsens handböcker för socialtjänsten och upprätthållandet av tvåkönsnormen2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates The Swedish Board of Health and Welfare handbooks and the upholding of the binary gender system using critical discourse analysis. The purpose of this study is to examine how the handbooks construct, produce and reproduce gender and examines the binary gender system prominence and dominance using Faircloughs critical discourse analysis. The study also makes use of a social constructivist perspective and queer theory. The results revealed how the handbooks both produce and reproduce the binary gender system by using a language, which exclude people who identify outside of the system. In this kind of study, it is only possible to speculate about the consequences from the order of discourse, by making the binary order of discourse visible and to reflect on the possible consequences for people who do not identify themselves as a woman or a man.

    From Eye to Us: Prerequisites for and levels of participation in mainstream school of persons with Autism Spectrum Conditions2013Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Children with Autism Spectrum Conditions (ASC) are included and thus expected to participate in mainstream schools. However, ASC are characterized by poor communication and difficulties in understanding social information; factors likely to have negative influences on participation. Hence, this thesis studied body functions hypothesized to affect social interaction and both perceived and observed participation of students with ASC in mainstream schools.

    Case-control studies were conducted to explore visual strategies used for face identification and required for recognition of facially expressed emotions in adults with ASC. Consistency of these visual strategies was tested in static and interactive dynamic conditions. A systematic review of the literature explored parents’ perceptions of factors contributing to inclusive school settings for their children with ASC. Questionnaires were used to investigate perceived participation in students with ASC and their classmates. Correlations between activities the students wanted to do and reported to participate in were identified. Teachers’ accuracy in rating their students with ASCs’ perception of participation was investigated. Furthermore, correlations between the accuracy of teachers’ ratings and the teachers’ self-reported professional experience, support and personal interest were examined. Correlations between teachers’ ratings and their reported classroom actions were also analysed. The frequency and level of engagement in social interactions of students with ASC and their classmates were also observed. Correlations between observed frequencies and self-rated levels of social interactions were explored.

    The International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health-Version for Children and Youth (ICF-CY) has been used as a structural framework, since ICF-CY enables complex information to be ordered and possible interactions between aspects in different components and factors to be identified. In regard to Body Functioning, difficulties identifying faces and recognizing basic facially expressed emotions in adults with ASC were established. The visual strategies displayed a high stability across stimuli conditions. Teachers’ knowledge about their students with ASC, in addition to their ability to implement ASCspecific teaching strategies, was emphasized as enhancing Environmental Factors for participation. Students with ASC reported less participation and fewer social interactions than their classmates, which could be interpreted as activity limitations and participation restrictions. However, in regard to some activities, they may have participated to the extent they wanted to. Compared with classmates, observations of students with ASC showed that they participated less frequently in social interactions, but were not less involved when they actually did. No correlations were found between perceived participation and observed social interactions in students with ASC.

    Teachers rated their students with ASCs’ perceived participation with good precision. Their understanding of the students with ASCs’ perception correlated with activities to improve the attitudes of classmates and adaptation of tasks. No such correlations were found in regard to reported activities aimed at enhancing social relations.

    The ability to process faces is usually well established in adults. Poor face processing can impact social functioning and the difficulties in face processing found in adults with ASC are probably the result of

    developmental deviations during childhood. Therefore, monitoring and assessing face processing abilities in students with ASC is important, in order to tailor interventions that aim to enhance participation in the social environment of mainstream schools.

    Since participation is a complex construct, interventions need to be complex, as well. In order to facilitate positive peer relations, teachers need to provide Activities adapted to the interests and social abilities of the students with ASC, and in which students with and without ASC can experience positive interactions. This requires that teachers assess all aspects that can affect Participation, including Environmental Factors, and the student’s functioning in regard to Activities and Body Functions. To enhance social interactions, interventions must be planned based on these assessments. If needed, interventions may require teaching students with ASC visual strategies, in order to enhance face processing and thereby the ability to recognize faces and facially expressed emotions. Observations together with self-reported information regarding the students’ preferences and their involvement constitute a basis for the planning and evaluating of such interventions. To include self-determination aspects could allow for possible interventions to be tailored in line with the students’ perceived needs and their own wishes, rather than primarily meeting a standard set by a control group. However, good insight into the students’ perception of Participation may not be enough. In order to adapt teaching instructions, communication and activities teachers also need ASC specific knowledge.

    Parents’ perspectives on inclusive schools for children with Autism Spectrum Conditions2015In: International journal of disability, development and education, ISSN 1034-912X, E-ISSN 1465-346X, Vol. 62, no 1, p. 1-23Article, review/survey (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Children with autism spectrum conditions (ASC) increasingly participate in inclusive education. The present study reviewed studies of children with ASC for parents’ perceptions of aspects they believed contributed to inclusive mainstream school settings. Understanding the parental perspective on the facilitators for inclusion of their child with ASC in mainstream schools is likely to improve inclusive practice. Twenty-eight empirical articles revealed that parents perceived teachers as playing a vital role in the inclusion of their children with ASC. The school was considered important in creating an environment that enabled inclusion, particularly through positive peer relations, prevention of bullying and help from support staff. At the societal level, funding and legislative policies were considered important. By understanding these aspects, policy-makers, teachers, school administrators and therapists may better be able to address parents’ inclusion concerns and thereby develop strategies to improve inclusion in mainstream schools.

    Recognition of facially expressed emotions and visual search strategies in adults with Asperger syndrome2011In: Research in Autism Spectrum Disorders, ISSN 1750-9467, E-ISSN 1878-0237, Vol. 5, no 1, p. 210-217Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Can the disadvantages persons with Asperger syndrome frequently experience with reading facially expressed emotions be attributed to a different visual perception, affecting their scanning patterns? Visual search strategies, particularly regarding the importance of information from the eye area, and the ability to recognise facially expressed emotions were compared between 24 adults with Asperger syndrome and their matched controls. While wearing a head mounted eye tracker, the participants viewed 12 pairs of photos of faces. The first photo in each pair was cut up into puzzle pieces. Six of the 12 puzzle pieced photos had the eyes bisected. The second photo showed a happy, an angry and a surprised face of the same person as in the puzzle pieced photo. Differences in visual search strategies between the groups were established. Adults with Asperger syndrome had greater difficulties recognizing these basic emotions than controls. The distortion of the eye area affected the ability to identify emotions even more negatively for participants with Asperger syndrome.

    From my perspective - Perceived participation in mainstream schools in students with autism spectrum conditions2012In: Developmental Neurorehabilitation, ISSN 1751-8423, E-ISSN 1751-8431, Vol. 15, no 3, p. 191-201Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Objectives: To examine perceived participation in students with ASC and their classmates in mainstream schools and to investigate correlations between activities the students wanted to do and actually participated in.

    Methods: Twenty-two students with ASC and their 382 classmates responded to a 46-item questionnaire regarding perceived participation in mainstream schools.

    Results: On 57% of the items, students with ASC perceived lower participation than their classmates. These results emphasize the importance of knowledge about students’ perceived participation. However, positive correlations between what the students wanted to do and actually did indicate that students with ASC may be participating to the extent that they wanted.

    Conclusion: Students with ASC perceived lower overall participation in mainstream school than their classmates. The correlations between “I want to” and “I do” statements in students with ASC indicated that aspects of autonomy are important to incorporate when studying, and interpreting, self-rated participation in mainstream schools.

    The importance of the eye area in face identification abilities and visual search strategies in persons with Asperger syndrome2010In: Research in Autism Spectrum Disorders, ISSN 1750-9467, E-ISSN 1878-0237, Vol. 4, no 4, p. 724-730Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Partly claimed to explain social difficulties observed in people with Asperger syndrome, face identification and visual search strategies become important. Previous research findings are, however, disparate. In order to explore face identification abilities and visual search strategies, with special focus on the importance of the eye area, 24 adults with Asperger syndrome and matched controls viewed puzzle pieced photos of faces, in order to identify them as one of three intact photos of persons. Every second puzzle pieced photo had the eyes distorted. Fixation patterns were measured by an eye tracker. Adults with Asperger syndrome had greater difficulties in identifying faces than controls. However, the entire face identification superiority in controls was found in the condition when the eyes were distorted supporting that adults with Aspergers syndrome do use the eye region to a great extent in face identification. The visual search strategies in controls were more effective and relied on the use of the ‘face information triangle’, i.e. the two eyes and the mouth, while adults with Asperger syndrome had more fixations on other parts of the face, both when obtaining information and during the identification part, suggesting a less effective use of the ‘face information triangle’.

    Looking through the Same Eyes?: Do Teachers’ Participation Ratings Match with Ratings of Students with Autism Spectrum Conditions in Mainstream Schools?2012In: Autism Research and Treatment, ISSN 2090-1925, E-ISSN 2090-1933, Vol. 2012, p. 1-13Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    To create an inclusive classroom and act accordingly, teachers’ understanding of the experiences of participation of students with autism spectrum conditions (ASCs) is crucial. This understanding may depend on the teachers’ professional experiences, support and personal interests. The aim of the present questionnaire study was to investigate how well the teachers’ ratings of their students with ASCs’ perception of participation matched with the students’ own ratings. Furthermore, possible correlations between the accuracy of teachers’ ratings and the teachers’ self-reported professional experience, support (including support-staff), and personal interest were investigated. Teachers’ ratings were also used to examine how their understandings correlated with classroom actions. The agreements between teachers’ and students’ ratings were moderate to high, and the ability to attune to the students’ perception of participation was not affected by the presence of a support-staff. The teachers’ personal interest in teaching students with ASC correlated with their accuracy, suggesting that this is a factor to consider when planning for successful placements in mainstream schools. Teachers’ understandings of the students with ASCs’ perception of being bullied or unpopular correlated with implementation of activities to improve the attitudes of classmates, but not with actions to enhance social relations for the students with ASC.

    The Effects of Motor and Cognitive Secondary Tasks on Brain Activity and Gait Performance2020Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In everyday life, the ability to perform two tasks simultaneously, dual task, is an omnipresent issue. There are several factors that can limit an individual’s ability to dual task, such as neurological pathologies, or physical disabilities. A reduced ability to perform dual task activities can result in decreased gait performance, higher risk of falls, a high probability of reduced participation, as well as contributing to a number of deterioration processes in the body. There are numerous situations in which dual tasking is used in therapy, however, there is no consensus regarding what kind of dual task to train in order to have the most effective outcomes. The aim of this systematic review is to investigate the relative effect of motor versus cognitive dual task on brain activity patterns and gait performance. Ten studies were identified in a systematic literature review in order to provide insight into the current status concerning the topic. The results showed high variations of analysed parameters and a very small amount of studies examining motor dual tasks. However, results indicated that cognitive dual tasks had a greater impact on brain activity. In regard to gait performance, no definite answer was found. Given the importance of dual tasks in everyday life and the numerous groups of people experiencing difficulties while dual tasking, the possibilities of adapting dual tasks in therapy should be a topic of future research.

    Personality and taxonomy preferences, and the influence of category choice on the user experience for music streaming services2019In: Multimedia tools and applications, ISSN 1380-7501, E-ISSN 1573-7721, Vol. 78, no 14, p. 20157-20190Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Music streaming services increasingly incorporate different ways for users to browse for music. Next to the commonly used “genre” taxonomy, nowadays additional taxonomies, such as mood and activities, are often used. As additional taxonomies have shown to be able to distract the user in their search, we looked at how to predict taxonomy preferences in order to counteract this. Additionally, we looked at how the number of categories presented within a taxonomy influences the user experience. We conducted an online user study where participants interacted with an application called “Tune-A-Find”. We measured taxonomy choice (i.e., mood, activity, or genre), individual differences (e.g., personality traits and music expertise factors), and different user experience factors (i.e., choice difficulty and satisfaction, perceived system usefulness and quality) when presenting either 6- or 24-categories within the picked taxonomy. Among 297 participants, we found that personality traits are related to music taxonomy preferences. Furthermore, our findings show that the number of categories within a taxonomy influences the user experience in different ways and is moderated by music expertise. Our findings can support personalized user interfaces in music streaming services. By knowing the user’s personality and expertise, the user interface can adapt to the user’s preferred way of music browsing and thereby mitigate the problems that music listeners are facing while finding their way through the abundance of music choices online nowadays.

    Push and pull of the OPAC2007In: Library 2.0 initiatives in academic libraries, Chicago: Association of College and Research Libraries , 2007, p. 73-84Chapter in book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter focuses on the work done by Jonkoping University Library in Sweden to implement technical solutions associated with Web 2.0. These include developing the OPAC as a Web resource rich in content, features and fully integrated with the library Web site.

    Emphasis is placed on the technical aspects of Web 2.0 rather than the social features often discussed in the literature. In this chapter, we’ll see examples of spelling suggestions, dynamic help, search forwarding, linking, graphical and structural integration, all implemented within the Ex Libris Aleph 500 system. The Jonkoping University Library OPAC – JULIA is not something we would describe as OPAC 2.0. There’s still progress to be made, especially in the areas of social interaction. However, we are focused and determined to move forward.

    The engaged researcher - From translator to literary change agent2007In: Systemic Practice and Action Research, ISSN 1094-429X, E-ISSN 1573-9295, Vol. 20, no 1, p. 27-39Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article we reflect upon an integrated approach to action research. The role of the engaged researcher is empirically addressed by using longitudinal field experiences. We take a narrative approach and tell three stories from the field. In analysing the stories we propose a transition of the role of the engaged researcher, from that of a translator of general theory and contextual practices to one of a literary change agent. The literary change agent inspires practitioners by means as concepts, metaphors and storytelling. We suggest that the narrative approach can bring a new and critical flavour to the previously under-explored area of the role of the researcher in action research.

    Abstract [sv]

    Hur ser personliga assistenter på sitt yrke, vad som är rimligt att utföra och tillvägagångssätt egentligen och hur ser deras chefer på det?  Genom att jämföra detta med det som framkommer gällande hur Jönköpings Kommun genererat och implementerat de riktlinjer som ligger till grund för en personlig assistents arbete med LSS lagen och andra direktiv kan även rimligheten i att kunna utföra personlig assistans utan generella riktlinjer tydliggöras. Det framkommer ett eventuellt behov av någon form av klarläggande av riktlinjer för att en så bra fungerande assistans som möjligt ska kunna utföras under bra arbetsförhållanden vilket gynnar både assistenter och brukare.

    Continuing Mobility and Occupational Participation Outside the Home in Old Age is an Act of Negotiation2011In: Activities, Adaptation & Aging, ISSN 0192-4788, E-ISSN 1544-4368, Vol. 35, no 4, p. 275-297Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Facilitated by mobility, occupational participaton is vital in old age. However, the relative importance of other influencing factors remains unclear. The present study describes older people's motives for, and experiences of, mobility and occuoational participation outside the home. Nine focus group interviews were conducted and analyzed using content analysis. Occupational participation and mobility was individually experienced even if some subjective perspectives were common. Continuing mobility and occupational participation outside the home in old age is an act of negotiation, encompassing occupational means and goals, occupational and mobility adaptation, and occupational barrieres and facilitators.

    Entrepreneurs Driven by the Need for Self-Fulfillment: An exploration of the origin of such a need and how entrepreneurs work towards fulfilling it2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This paper is a Master Thesis studying the human need for Self-Fulfillment, presented as the equivalent of Self-Actualization, in the context of entrepreneurship. The problems identified in the field are the lack of literature on Self-Actualization in entrepreneurship although it is something observed in the world, the lack of empirical data in the field of motivation, and finally the fact Self-Actualization is a need leading an individual to contribute to his or her surrounding (unlike other needs), which makes understanding its consequences and origin all the more important. Two aspects were chosen to cover the topic: tracing the origin of the need and understanding how entrepreneurs fulfill it (for those using their compa-ny for that purpose). To do so, interviews consisting of 4 themes were carried out with 12 individuals having started and running their company (both genders, various cultural backgrounds, with companies of various size, age and industry), and driven by the need to Self-Fulfill. The main findings are the fact the individual’s mindset and attitudes seem to be what enables him or her to reach Self-Actualization, and these human qualities and characteristic could be gathered under the terms “Personal Development”. Also some people felt the need to Self-Actualize before starting the venture and thus have an idea of how to contribute: the company be-comes only a step in the process. Others reached the need after starting the company and see it as a set of opportunities to Self-Actualize. In both case however, a holistic view over the firm seems to be the only way to truly actualize through it: every aspect of the business needs to be focused on helping and improvement (not just the business idea). Finally, by expanding the findings made in entrepreneurship, this paper suggests that in general, Personal Development may  lead to society’s improvement and provides some suggestions to continue the study.

    The significance of crashing past gatekeepers of knowledge: Towards full participation of disabled scholars in ableist academic structures2020In: Ableism in Academia: Theorising experiences of disabilities and chronic illnesses in higher education / [ed] N. Brown & J. Leigh, London: UCL Press, 2020Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this chapter is to present a feminist-pragmatist philosophical argument as to the significance of broadening the body of mainstream academic knowledge. Academic disciplines have been slow in adjusting their knowledge basein the light of societal, technological, political and other developments and their grassroots movements. Even in the 21st century, Jane Addams’ calls for social justice, improvedliving conditions, and quality education based on lived experience and rigorous knowledge seem almost subversive, with academics still debating whether for instance activism or other forms of knowledge should inform theories.Unsurprisingly, hierarchical knowledge systems have alwaysconstituted sites for ‘others’ to overcome barriers to participation and recognition in such systems, in a literal, epistemological and ontological sense. Nancy Fraser's concept of recognition and Addams' concept of research-based activism for social change here meet with crip theorist Alison Kafer (2013) for critical thought about the different meanings of participation, and change in transformative spaces, a concept that harks back to the early days of feminist pragmatism. I argue that any effort to improve participation in higher education must entail advocacy for structures and contents that encourage the use of participatory methodologies that enable disabled academics to transcend the qualitative and quantitative, the medical model and social model divides that narrow possibilities for the type of future envisaged not only by crip queer theorists but by 19th century women activists that fought to take their lived experience into the public sphere. By proactively seeking out and incorporating spaces for transformative learning and scholarship, ableism in academia, based on prejudice and historically flawed reasoning, will not only be challenged but increasingly rejected.

    Transformativa kunskapsprocesser för verksamhetsutveckling: En feministisk aktionsforskningsstudie i förskolan2009Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This doctoral thesis had two purposes. 1. To study some preschool teachers’ possibilities to develop a gender aware pedagogy by applying theories of organisation, profession and collaboration. 2. To do qualitative research by drawing on principles of research for social justice, as a contribution to the development of methodology in feminist educational action research. The following research questions helped elucidate these purposes: How do preschool teachers create space for reflection and knowledge processes over time? What individual and collective actions do preschool teachers take over time? How can this study contribute to organisational development? Feminist pragmatism served as the philosophical underpinning for feminist action research (FAR) as a methodology and method. The preschool teachers were regarded as agents for change in their own pedagogic and organisational practices. Over a three-year period meetings were conducted on a regular basis. One-on-one interviews, group interviews, numerous emails, telephone calls and some observations completed the data collection. The analytical research narrative emerged by linking the preschool teachers’ actions to their ambiguous professional status. Actions were interpreted by applying the principles inherent in FAR, what, who and critical incidents over time. The absence of professional recognition from the municipal employer and parents for the preschool teachers was evident. Since the preschool teachers needed professional recognition, they experienced the collaborative nature of this study of great value as it conferred legitimacy for their professional development. There emerged meaningful pedagogic change over time, which emphasised the temporal aspect of organisational change from the bottom up. Collective actions began to take root in a shared value system. The design of the project – to collaborate with an outside ally – was decisive in regard to creating space for reflection and collective actions. Collective actions were possible due to the courage of individual participants who dared break silences surrounding organisational injustices. In conclusion, it can be stated that organisational change over time is indeed possible by practising radical openness for agency. Transformative knowledge processes can be achieved provided that genuine offers of participation are issued and well received. By elaborating on terms such as action, participation, emancipation, social justice and knowledge, a methodological contribution could be made to feminist action research.

    Working in knowledge-intensive organisations when it is impossible to be physically present: female employees who suffer from chronic illnesses2019In: Human resource management: A Nordic perspective / [ed] Helene Ahl, Ingela Bergmo Prvulovic & Karin Kilhammar, London: Routledge, 2019, p. 177-189Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In knowledge-intensive organisations, it is unnecessarily limiting to define the workplace as a physical building encompassing a ‘nine to five’ work shift. Much knowledge-intensive work can be conducted off-site using various forms of information technology. For the chronically ill, an inability to access the physical workplace is often used as an excuse to remove the employee, with little effort made to keep them employed via different work methods. This isolates the former employee and causes a loss of their, often considerable, knowledge to the organisation. We must reconsider how we view what work is and what constitutes the workplace.

    Between duty and right: disabled schoolchildren and teachers’ ableist manifestations in Sweden2019In: Disability & Society, ISSN 0968-7599, E-ISSN 1360-0508, Vol. 34, no 9-10, p. 1668-1673Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article we discuss ableist manifestations about chronically ill and disabled schoolchildren in Sweden. On claiming their right to schooling, these children risk being excluded due to not conforming with norms while being refused alternative formats that would enable participation. They are then accused of not attending school and construed as problematic. Parents are derided as mollycoddling perpetrators by teachers who perceive themselves as superior knowers of disability and illness, polarising an already infected school debate. Alternative formats for participation are derided, claiming that certain disabilities do not exist or that parents exaggerate their children's symptoms. We concede that teachers' poor work environments due to underfunding and unreasonable workloads are problematic, but we are adamant that unfavourable work conditions must not entail unethical professional conduct. We hope this article will contribute to putting the situation of chronically ill and disabled schoolchildren in Sweden on the radar of Critical Disability Studies as well as in relevant fields of practice and that it might stimulate a change in public debate.
