Research Program Overview

The main focus of my work is on applying the framework of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) to Developmental Paediatrics. The interest is to develop new approaches to better identify needs of children with disabilities and other complex conditions and their families, improve the interprofessional communication based on the ICF and develop training methods to teach the ICF.
