Session Synopsis

Practitioners frequently use diagnostic criteria to identify children with neurodevelopmental disorders and to guide intervention decisions. 

This assumes that diagnostic criteria reflects an underlying reality. 

In this session, Joni will present evidence showing this assumption may not be valid, and argues for the use of an alternative transdiagnostic approach. 

Speaker Bio

She has a PhD in Psychology, awarded by the University of Durham in 2005. Joni’s research aims to understand why some children encounter difficulties at school. Her recent work challenges the use of diagnostic frameworks to identify children with neurodevelopmental differences and to guide intervention decisions. In this talk she will present evidence supporting the use of an alternative transdiagnostic approach.
