Scientific and practical reflections on problematic school absenteeism. Online conference 10th november 2021
Speakers from the Nordic countries address academic problems and socio-emotional distress. Among them, are an increasing number of students with neurodevelopmental disorders such as ADHD, Tourette’s Syndrome and autism.
The Nordic Erasmus+ project on, Problematic School Absenteeism – Improving Systems and Tools, provides in this report an overview of existing definitions and theories about school absenteeism.
It also attempts to determine definitions and frames of understanding overlooked in the literature/research. The outcome is to arrive at common denominators and frames of understanding within and across the Nordic countries.
The objective of this anthology is to convey knowledge regarding inclusive communities in kindergartens and schools. Creating inclusive communities is one of the fundamental principles in our education system. Diverse children and young people should be able to learn and develop in a community of practice, and good adaptation is a prerequisite for the accomplishment thereof.
