Personal profile


Kamilla's research interest stems from her experiences in didactic interactions with individuals with intellectual disabilities (ID), including those with co-occurring autism. Over a span of 20 years, from 1997 to 2017, she worked extensively in primary and secondary special education settings and as an educator at an activity center for adults.

Between 2018 and 2022, Kamilla dedicated herself to doctoral studies within the framework of the national research school, Special Education for Teacher Educators (SET), generously supported by the Swedish Research Council (Grant No. 2017-06039). On May 25, 2022, Kamilla defended her dissertation, titled "Gaining Access to Learning Processes: Professional Development for Teachers Instructing Students with Intellectual Disabilities and Autism in Special Primary Education."

Her dissertation has offered insights into how educators in adapted primary education (formerly primary and secondary special education) can refine their pedagogical approaches to enhance student engagement and learning. Following her doctoral defense, Kamilla continues to delve into research, primarily focusing on teachers' professional development in adapted primary education, particularly emphasizing student involvement and learning outcomes. Presently, she collaborates closely with a local school to implement her research findings in practical contexts and has initiated international exchanges to broaden her horizons and collaborate with colleagues on a global scale. Kamilla remains dedicated to improving the educational experiences and well-being of students.


My background is that I am a special educational needs and disability (SEND) teacher. I teach in the special teacher programs at Kristianstad University.
