Ongoing research projects at KIND
On this page you can find ongoing research- and developmental projects at KIND. Most of our projects are about ADHD or autism spectrum conditions.
Sven Bölte's research group
ICF Core Sets for ADHD and autism
This research project will operationalize the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) Core Sets for ADHD and autism into a user-friendly internet platform.
KONTAKT – A group-based social skills training method for autistic youth
Group social skills training with KONTAKT is a clinical intervention for autistic children and adolescents of school age.
KIND and school related work
At KIND we are working to implement working methods, technological aids and to contribute to the development of evidence-based methods in schools to facilitate schooling for students with special needs, especially students with neurodevelopmental disorders (NDD).
RATSS - A twin study of autism and ADHD
The Roots of Autism and ADHD Twin Study in Sweden (RATSS) explores the causes of autism and ADHD in monozygotic and dizygotic (identical and nonidentical) twin pairs with and without neurodevelopmental disorders.
FEFA 2 - a computer based program for the training and testing of facial affect recognition.
Reliability and validity of the Swedish versions of the ADOS and the ADI-R.

Our project aims at increasing knowledge on the connections between ADHD and parenting, as well as the types of support that are helpful for parents with ADHD.
Terje Falck-Ytter's research group
The Preschool Brain Imaging and Behaviour Project (the PIP study)
The Preschool Brain Imaging and Behaviour Project is the first Europe-wide study to track the development of preschool children with and without autism and related neurodevelopmental conditions.
Kristiina Tammimies's research group
Our research aims at understanding the genetic and molecular architecture of NDDs, and how genetic variations affect symptoms, severity and intervention outcomes in affected individuals. Additionally, we aim at identifying molecular and cellular pathways affected by genetic and environment risk factors of NDD using neuronal cells.

Support in the transition to adulthood
The transition to adulthood can be challenging for young people with neurodevelopmental conditions. Timely and efficient support at this stage can be crucial for future life chances. At KIND, we are currently conducting a series of studies to learn more about the support needs of young adults, and how the support ideally should be delivered.
