Abstract [en]

This is a sociological jurisprudence study which focuses on "child perspective" in Law of Support and Service with Certain Functional Impairments, LSS. The purpose of the study was to clarify the meaning of child perspective in LSS and analyze it in relation to practice. The study was conducted with mixed strategies combining qualitative and jurisprudential methods. Both LSS and Law of Social Welfare, SoL, were studied. Social workers from dirrerent muncipalities in Sweden were interwiewed. To analyze the material we used "the child as a subject and actor or an object in need of protection" and "sociology of law - law as a political management control measure and conflict solver". The results showed that child perspective in LSS can be ambiguous and complex both within law and on the other hand children are pronounced as objects in need of protection. Disabled children´s participation in LSS is constrained because of several dilemmas such as colliding perspectives, communication impairments, scarce resources and, first and foremost, adult´s attitudes toward children.
