ADHD and creativity, Positive aspects of ADHD

Article on ADHD and ASD symptoms in relation to creativity accepted for publication

July 2022: Proud to share our article on creativity and ADHD and ASD symptoms. We show (again) that having more ADHD symptoms is associated with a higher performance on divergent thinking. People with ADHD and people without a diagnosis, but with many ADHD symptoms, are good at finding alternative uses for a known item/product, a very useful skill in current times where we have to think about alternative ways to use energy, housing, living space etc. Many thanks to Marije Stolte (UU), Victoria Trindade Pons (UMCG), Priscilla Vlaming (RUMC), Babette Jakobi (RUMC), Barbara Franke (RUMC), Evelyn Kroesbergen (RU), Matthijs Baas (UvA) and ofcourse NWO-Veni and ZonMW.

‘Teken je ADHD superheld’

Ik ben officieel nog niet met mijn Veni project begonnen, maar we (Jeanette Mostert en ik) bedachten al wel vast een leuke ‘kick-off’ op de open dag van het Radboudumc op 6 oktober 2018. We organiseerden een tekenwedstrijd met de opdracht ‘Teken je ADHD superheld’. Heel veel kinderen tekenden mooie, stoere en originele superhelden, waarvoor heel veel dank! Deze van Pepijn (8 jaar) vonden we de allermooiste! Gefeliciteerd Pepijn!
