ADHD is a disorder of the brain. It first appears during childhood, and continues throughout adulthood, affecting almost every part of life. ADHD is divided into three major patterns of behavior: inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsive behavior. It may even be a combination of the three. Inattention means it is hard for your child to focus on a set of tasks for a sustained period of time. Hyperactivity means your child may often feel restless and can’t easily settle down. Impulsive behavior means trouble controlling urges and impulses. Causes of ADHD Experts are not exactly sure what causes ADHD, but there are some common factors that maybe play a role: Genetics. If a close relative has ADHD, a child has an increased risk of having it as well. Brain chemistry. Studies have shown there may be a link between ADHD behavior and the amount of neurotransmitters in the brain. These are chemicals that help brain cells communicate with each other. Even the size of the brain can be related to ADHD. Environmental factors. Children who are exposed to environmental toxins like lead, which used to be included in paint, may be at in increased risk of developing ADHD
