What Is ADHD?

ADHD is a common medical condition that affects 5% of children and 2.5% of adults in America. Those who have this condition often experience inattentiveness and instances of hyperactivity. They may also tend to act on impulses quite frequently.

What Are the Causes of ADHD?

Medical professionals have yet to determine an exact cause of ADHD. However, some researchers have found evidence that this condition is connected to genetics. Studies show that three out of four children diagnosed with ADHD have a relative with the condition as well.
