Up-to-date research is crucial in order to:

  • meet the diversity of educational needs
  • enhance support services 
  • provide research-based recommendations for interventions in the field of special needs education.

O-AILL provides students with hands-on experience with assessment, intervention, and counseling under supervision. The aim is to educate knowledgable and competent practitioners, who are keeping up with the latest development in research and who are considerate towards the heterogeneity of individuals with special needs.

Book rooms and/or scientific instruments

Reservation of rooms and instruments is done via Lab Agenda. Register or login.

The lab has 4 multipurpose rooms and 2 acoustically treated rooms for audiometry, sound recording, and EEG measurement (EEG will arrive early 2020).

Of advanced scientific instruments, we have an EyeLink 1000 Plus eye tracker, which has market-leading precision and accuracy. It can be used stationary in the lab, or transported for field studies.
