Special Interest Group Special Education is aiming at understanding learning and learning difficulties in various educational contexts. We work on understanding the developmental dynamics in all age groups. Our research is done with various scientific disciplines, such as psychology, neuroscience, sport science and sociology. Our work will benefit professionals in education practice widely, as we aim to support evidence-based practice in all levels (early childhood education, compulsory school and secondary education).
