Special Education

Research in Special Education is a new research area at Umeå University with around five researchers. Special Education is not a defined research subject, but included in several other subjects, such as Education, Educational work, Linguistics and Psychology, and it is in a clear phase of expansion. At Umeå University research in the field of Special Education includes dyslexia, special educational needs in Mathematics, and writing development. As Special Education is inherently a multidisciplinary subject there is a natural connection between research in Special Education and two of the strong research areas – Mathematics Education and Literacy.
