Abstract
The aim of this essay was to see how the respondents reasoned about different themes like,
isolation, integration and barriers to integration, given that they had all been diagnosed with a
psychosis diagnosis. The essay has used qualitative interviews, by the author of this essay, with persons working as escort to persons with an impairment To complement the interviews with more perspectives this essay has used relevant laws to the essay topics and postings from the Swedish Employment Service.

The interviews, the laws and the postings from the Swedish Employment Service were analyzed against the social model as a theory. The social model claims that it is the society that causes the disability for the individual, rather then the impairment causing the disability.

The results and analysis showed that the laws intend the individual to live a good life or a good enough life depending on which law is used to grant an escort to the individual with an impairment. Employers often asks for specific characteristics in the escort. This could insinuate that the employer is trying to match the escort to the person who wants an escort so that their personalities or interests match as much as possible. In line with the result from analyzing the postings from the Swedish Emplyment Service, the interviews shows that the escorts likes their jobs and does not always look at what they do as a job because it can be something in between having a job and a friendship.


Key words: Impairment, social model, social exclusion, escort, normalization
