The project is about adolescents and young adults with neuropsychiatric disabilities and their everyday life, with particular respect to support at school and the occupational transition to upper secondary school, further studies and/or working life. The transition process from secondary to upper secondary school, working life and/or further studies implies new challenges and is a critical point for many young adults with Asperger’s syndrome (AS) or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). What kind of support they receive in secondary and upper secondary school and during the subsequent period can have considerable significance for young adults’ establishment in the labour market. The project sets out from the informants’ own perspectives and experiences of support at school and the transition process for secondary to upper secondary school, further studies and/or working life.
I am also involved in the RemindMe project, testing a new, interactive and web-based reminder system among young adults with neuropsychiatric difficulties.
Teaching on the Occupational Therapy programme
I teach mainly on the Occupational Therapy programme, where I am the course coordinator of the course “ICF, classification of functioning, disability and health”, and its application. I teach and lecturer on the international classifications ICF and ICF-CY on the second-cycle course “Health and participation in occupational therapy – a global perspective”. I supervise degree projects and group tutors, primarily on course 8.
