The aim is to qualify and improve current praxis around children and adolescents. The praxis investigated includes both the everyday praxis in general settings such as day-care and school, preventive praxis and intervention directed at more specific developmental disorders such as ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorder. Similarly the group focus on the developmental period from embryo and into early adulthood and strive to include not just an isolated focus on the child or the adolescent but also the social context which defines the participatory setting influencing health, learning and development. The social context may include parents, siblings, friends, peers, and professional.
