CV E.M. Scholte (2014)


His research is practice oriented and targets the psychological, educational and family processes involved in cognitive and social-emotional development of children and adults with special developmental needs, as well as development of applications to improve treatment practices for these individuals. The latter includes the development of evidence based tools for the assessment of special needs and the implementation of appropriate educational, family and social welfare services that stimulate optimum cognitive and social-emotional growth.
