Special education, inclusion and issues related to the development of inclusive schools are close to my heart. I am also interested in learning for pupils with intellectual disabilities and in augmentative and alternative communication methods. In my dissertation, I am investigating how co-teaching can be used to promote inclusion in schools. I am a member of research groups Diversity in Education (DivE) and SpEdu (Special education)
