Abstract [en]

Denna uppsats handlar om musik och rörelse skulle kunna vara en alternativ vägledningsmetod vid studievägledning för ungdomar med diagnosen ADHD/DAMP. Uppsatsskrivarnas huvudsyfte var att undersöka om musik och rörelse skulle kunna användas inom vägledning för att ge dessa ungdomar större möjligheter till ett mer kvalitativt underbyggt val till vidare studier. Undersökningen bygger på kvalitativa metoder genom intervjuer med studievägledare inom grundskola samt en aktiv studievägledare (verksam med ADHD-elever). Vi har också intervjuat en Tomatis terapeut (En metod som tränar hjärnan att prioritera, sortera och hantera sinnesintryck bättre) samt en användare av metoden. Resultaten vi kom fram till var att Tomatismetoden resulterade i stora förbättringar gällande koncentration och uppmärksamhet, samt att kvarvarande effekter bestod i minst sex månader. Intervjuerna av studie- och yrkesvägledarna visade bland annat att dessa var öppna för att prova musik & rörelse i sin vägledning, men att de ekonomiska resurserna kunde bli ett hinder för skolorna att investera i dyrbara enheter.

The main subject for this study may briefly be expressed as follows: Could possibly music and physical movement be used as alternative and additional means educational and professional guidance of children and young people with special needs e.g. due to problems like ADHD/DAMP? Consequently we have tried to study how these two means of assistance now are being used to guide such young clients and increase their possibilities to make a more qualified and well founded choice of further studies. Our research is mainly based on intensive interviews with guidance personnel active in elementary schools but also one teacher specialized on guiding pupils with an ADHD-diagnosis. Further on we made interviews with one therapist and one user of the so called Tomatis Method-a brain training method designed to help individuals to a distinguished and better handling of stimuli and sensual impressions. According to our results the Tomatis Method indeed improved the concentration and attention of the pupils-With effects clearly noticeable at least six months later. Our interviews with teachers specialized on guiding, revealed that they were quite positive to future test and use of music and physical movement as means in their work, although lack of economic resources might be in more expensive units and arrangements.
