Gaining Views from Pupils with Autism about Their Participation in Drama Classes
Loyd, Daisy
British Journal of Learning Disabilities, v43 n1 p8-15 Mar 2015
Pupils with autism (aged 16-18) were interviewed as part of a study examining the participation of individuals with autism in drama education. This paper reflects on the approaches devised to gain views from ten pupils with autism who communicated in different ways. The procedure for gaining views from the pupils is explained, and the views they give are outlined. The pupils were able to identify aspects of drama education that they liked and did not like; share goals of drama education and communicate feelings about drama education. The views are discussed in terms of how they inform understandings of individuals with autism as well as their participation in drama education. Challenges specific to gaining views from a group of pupils with autism are considered and implications for future research presented.
