People with ADHD

If you have ADHD, or a family member or friend is diagnosed with ADHD, you want to know as much about it as possible. However, many questions are still unanswered because they have not been researched yet. We provide a possibility to have your research questions answered.

What subjects should be researched?

What is your most important question? Should there be more research into the connection between ADHD and studying? Would you like to know more about the effects of ADHD on your work? Or are you interested in diets?

Let us know what your research questions are by filling in our questionnaire. We collect the results every two months and publish them online. That way, the preferences of the ADHD community are accessible to everyone. Researchers looking to fund their projects, take those preferences into account.

Researchers

Are you a researcher looking to fund your project? We offer you a forum where you can present your proposal to the community and raise the required fund in three months. Read how it works here.

Raising money (crowdfunding)

The research proposals are presented here. If the proposal raises sufficient funds, the research project can go ahead. Do you support the subject and would you like the project to be executed? You can make a donation here to support your favourite cause.

Completely independent

Have you ever wondered whether you could trust the results of a survey? ADHDFund is completely independent from the pharmaceutical industry. The only ones contributing to the fund is the ADHD community. That is you and me!

New crowdfunding project:

EYE ADHD – looking into the eye of ADHD

Arco de Heer, psychologist at PsyQ Leiden and junior researcher at Expertise Center Adult ADHD, PsyQ The Hague.

The function of the eye and ADHD

In this innovative study, we examine the visual system in ADHD. We want to investigate whether particular visual problems are connected to ADHD symptoms and the often delayed sleep/wake rhythm.

Thus, we want to find out if the symptons of ADHD can be influenced via the eye.

Our target: € 4.920

Do you support this research proposal?

Arco and his team can only carry it out if they raise sufficient funds.

Will you help by making a donation?
