Abstract [en]

This study described an ethnographic approach how communication and interaction between children with autism and staff in their daily activities in a school in Kenya. A qualitative approach was chosen to answer the purpose. Data were collected through observation and interview. The participants were two girls who were 11 years and four staff who worked at the school. Field notes on the observation were due to the semi-structured interview with the staff who participated in the study. Collected data were analysed based on content analysis, which resulted in the overall theme "Interaction and communication create participation in daily activities" and three categories "Tenderness actions creates opportunities for interaction", "Interaction of activities stimulate motivation" and finally "Alternative communication in interaction". The result shows that the staff and the children with autism used different ways to enable communication and interaction in daily activities, but also the relationship they have created, helped to develop their communication and interaction. The results give implications for children with autism through interaction with other people can improve their ability to communicate. The approach staff used, show the importance of treatment and to create a relationship with children with autism to develop their communication skills. The result also shows the need to continue developing picture communication for children with autism. Keywords: participation, motivation, tenderness action, alternative communication
