Helping Hyper Active Nurture Development – HELPING HAND (2017-2019) The project aims to provide teachers in kindergartens and parents with knowledge and skills to understand better and work more effective with children with ADHD/challenging behaviour in regular (mainstream) learning environment. For the successful lifelong inclusion, the participation in age related activities and environment is very important for every child either with typical or atypical development. This goal is supported by the intellectual outputs of the project: handbook and training for kindergarten teachers and manual for parents about ADHD/challenging behaviour.

The ‘Autism in Education’ Research Group (2016–2020) of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (HAS) – ELTE University has been officially founded on the 1st of September, 2016. It is funded via a grant within the Content Pedagogy Research Program of the HAS. The research group has developed its approach on the basis of its preceding work within the framework of the ‘Inter-Departmental Autism Research Group’ at our Faculty. Beyond their foci in exploratory research and innovative R+D projects, their main interest is in establishing and developing further the evidence-based practices within the field of autism.
The research group integrates research and practice competencies in the fields of education, special needs education, psychology, and health sciences. Cognitive development, educational neuroscience and the evidence-based application of state-of-art info-communication tools receive special emphasis.
