The focus of each of these projects is on autism, ADHD or both. Our interest is not just whether or not the group of people with autism and/or ADHD does show deficits on a specific domain as we are also interested in the individual differences in performance. Not all people with autism and/or ADHD do have a similar pattern of strengths and weaknesses; therefore, it is of importance to determine individual differences. Moreover, we focus on how the observed (individual) deficits can be overcome by experimental manipulations or by treatment programs.
Our goal is to translate fundamental knowledge regarding autism and ADHD into practical knowledge (& care) and vice versa.
