Description
There are similar characters between regional science research and developmental disorder research. The subjects of each field can be categorized into various types. When conducting research from the subject’s perspective, it is necessary, when connecting factors involved in categories, to treat matters related from the point of view of subject who are handling matters from their own strategic resources. Here is where the characteristics are similar between the two research fields.
The present study considers the interdisciplinary overlap shared between regional science and developmental disorder research concerning the situation of undergoing a midlife diagnosis. Diagnoses undergone during midlife is defined as a diagnosis after the person has grown up, is able to self-select and mobilize resources and with the various resources conduct complex selections to accept or ease the impact of the diagnosed self. Thus, in the present study, interviews were conducted to investigate persons diagnosed in midlife with a developmental disorder. Based on the interview data, we clarify what strategies the persons developed upon diagnosis and how those particular strategies were related to characteristic of the diagnosed disorder.
Following Fujimura, Masayuki’s perspective, we assume that contemporary society is a risk society In addition, we discuss, based on the hypothesis of the influence of a risk society, how to live or how to live after being diagnosed with a developmental disorder. As a result, we found that for those diagnosed with a developmental disorder, rather than the influence and effect of the diagnosis itself, critical is the influence and effect of the decisions of various organized systems of self-determination that are invoked upon the diagnostic. Furthermore, we found that there is a considerable differences in orientations of individual diagnosis and the reorganization strategies of living. However, this diversity represents similar characters of strategies of living in society with developmental disorders.
