Using technology to help with attention problems

31 August 2020

Many people have problems with focusing and maintaining attention. People who have ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) experience these kinds of problems particularly acutely. This survey is for anyone who has problems with attention, including those with ADHD, and explores what kinds of attention problems you have, how you deal with them and whether you use technology in any way to help. It is the first step towards creating an app to help with attention problems.
