About KaTid AB

We at KaTid Svenska AB are driven by the development of clinically useful knowledge, methods for assessment and intervention. We are passionate about sharing this knowledge with colleagues, both nationally and internationally. 

We established our company in 2009, after we had completed our Master degrees. Within our Master thesis we developed a material for assessing time processing ability in children, KaTid-Barn (KaTid-Child), which we tested with 61 typically developing six-year-olds. We had a vision of developing a material that would be useful for the children we met at our habilitation center, as we realised that many of our clients had difficulties with time processing ability and daily time management.

After the development of Swedish KaTid-Barn, which we tested in research on children 5-10 years old with and without disabilities, we continued to develop KaTid-Ung (KaTid-Youth) for people aged 10-17 years old. We started marketing the material and training professionals in time processing ability, daily time management and using the KaTid material, in collaboration with the Swedish Association of Occupational Therapists.

Continued research and development of the material and intervention are ongoing. We have translated the material to English, and several other lanuages are in progress. We are currently in the final stages of development of two more materials; KaTid-Adult, which is aimed at people with intellectual disabilities from the age of 18, and KaTid-Senior, which is aimed at elderly with dementia (14). We continue to train and certify new KaTid raters. Soon we will be offering KaTid training online in English.

In recent years, we have developed contacts abroad. We are in contact with researchers in several countries for further development of the KaTid material for other populations. Soon both the material and the training will be available in English as well as other languages. Today KaTid® is a registered tradmark. If you are interested in translating some of the instruments to your language, please contact us for more information.
