The FinSwed Study

The Finland-Swedish minority study of cognition in children (The FinSwed Study)

The FinSwed Study investigates the generalizability of Swedish cognitive tests to the Swedish speaking minority in Finland. The tests in focus are the WISC-V, WPPSI-IV, and parts of the NEPSY-II. Based on the findings, official recommendations for test use in Swedish in Finland will be published.

The FinSwed Study was funded by The Swedish Cultural Foundation in Finland, the association Svenska folkskolans vänner, and the foundations Stiftelsen Brita Maria Renlunds minne sr, and Oskar Öflunds stiftelse.
