Over the past 12 years, the number of students requiring pedagogical accommodations at KI has surged, from 200 in 2011 to 815 today. This trend is mirrored across Sweden's higher education landscape, with over 30,000 students granted pedagogical accommodations, many of which have been diagnosed with neurodevelopmental disorders like dyslexia, autism and ADHD. Join our session to discuss the potential impact on teaching at KI.

In this session   

  • Elisabeth Nilsson Jobs will give you an overview of the impacts of core symptoms of neurodevelopmental disorders.  
  • You will gain essential insights which will help you to foster a deeper understanding of these conditions, and how they may affect the student's experience of learning. 
  • You will have the opportunity to participate in a discussion with Elisabeth and other participants on why and  how to  provide support to students with diverse and changing needs. 

This session will also promote the forthcoming resources for teachers, which will be released this summer.
