WHAT CAUSES
ADHD?

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurobiological condition that influences development.
 

The exact cause of ADHD remains unclear, but it's believed to involve a combination of genetic and environmental factors.

ADHD presents both positive and negative characteristics. It becomes problematic when its challenging aspects significantly disrupt daily life.
 

Research, including family, twin, and adoption studies, indicates that ADHD is predominantly genetic. However, no single gene is solely responsible for ADHD. Instead, it likely arises from the interaction of multiple genes. These genes may affect brain structure, neurochemical composition, and brain connectivity and function.
 

Treatment options for ADHD include medications, behavioral therapies, and lifestyle adjustments, each tailored to individual needs.
 

ADHD is among the most extensively studied neurobiological developmental disorders. While there is some debate over treatment options, ongoing research continues to enhance our understanding of the condition.
