Healthcare professionals sought for a survey about neurodiversity

Aug 25, 2023

Do you work in healthcare and meet neurodivergent individuals daily?


Objectives: R2D2-MH researchers at Karolinska Institutet’s Center for neurodevelopmental conditions are conducting a survey about the strengths and capabilities of neurodivergent individuals and how to help improve their wellbeing.

Context of the survey: The World Health Organization (WHO) has developed a tool to describe individuals’ availabilities under different conditions, called International Classification of Functioning (ICF). The aim of the survey is to develop a new version of ICF for resilience in neurodevelopmental diversity, notably by identifying the factors that you, as healthcare professional, think are important for resilience and thriving in this context.

How does it work: this survey consists of questions about behavior, environment and individual factors, as well as some additional background questions. The survey can take place either via a secured platform owned by Karolinska Instituet, or over the phone with a member of the research team. It will take approximately 30 minutes to complete.

Who can apply? Experts with a clinical background (coach, nurse, occupational therapist, physician, psychotherapist, psychologist, physiotherapist, social worker, counsellor, special education teacher, speech and language therapist…) and five years or more experience working with neurodivergent individuals.
