Interventions in Childhood

The Master’s programme Interventions in Childhood is an interdisciplinary education focusing on effective interventions for children in need of support — beyond what is normally provided to all children.

The Master’s programme Interventions in Childhood offers an interdisciplinary education to provide effective interventions for children in need of support for their development, learning and functioning in everyday lifebeyond what is provided to all children. The programme is based on an ecological perspective on child development, learning, and functioning. A critical perspective focusing on the individual, the environment, and their interrelationship, is emphasized. The programme addresses everyday life situations of children in various settings, including family, preschool/school, hospital, and community, and the connection between research and practical everyday work is stressed.

The programme is open for international and domestic students. It is closely connected to the CHILD (Children-Health-Intervention-Learning- Development) research programme at the Schools of Education and Communication and Health and Welfare at Jönköping University and associated with the Swedish Institute for Disability Research  SIDR). The programme is designed to provide students with a good background for doctoral education, and for leadership roles in early childhood education and care, school-systems, early intervention/habilitation, special education, child healthcare, social services or other child related organizations.

Interventions in Childhood is offered as a 1-year (60 credits) and a 2-year (120 credits) programme.
