The reality is we do not know exactly what causes ADHD, but we know there are certain factors that play a role. Factors that play a role in ADHD are if there is family history or connection, pregnancy problems (high-risk) or head injuries. While there is a lot of speculation about ADHD being linked to things like watching TV, sugar, certain medications during pregnancy, research has not found there to be a causal effect.

Children in general may exhibit the symptoms of ADHD, but it doesn’t mean they have the chronic medical condition. Any diagnoses of ADHD should come from a qualified and trained physician. Certain screenings you can ask your doctor to perform. (Editor’s Note: Your child can also be assessed for ADHD through his/her school.)
