Uncomfortable spaces: Perceptions of individuals with Asperger’s Syndrome in the Republic of Armenia

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

This presentation reports on a research project conducted in the Republic of Armenia that sought to understand perspectives of Asperger’s Syndrome across a broad range of society. Over 50 responses from those with Special Educational Needs and / or a Disability to the parents of those with an identified Special Educational Need and members of the public were analysed in order to discern underlying beliefs, concerns and attitudes across each respondent group. Responses highlight a complex web of discourses that are used to critique commonly expressed beliefs in the international literature.
