ADHD & Your Child
ADHD is a treatable medical condition. Its exact cause is unknown, but it’s believed in part to be the result of an imbalance in chemical messengers that affect behavior. Genetic and environmental factors may also play a role in ADHD. ADHD may impact your child in different settings (at home, at school, and in social situations). And, as your child gets older, ADHD symptoms may look different over time.
Curious about ADHD? Or has your child received an ADHD diagnosis? Either way it is important to talk to your doctor. Visit Getting Started to find helpful information and plan for your visit to the Doctor by reviewing the ADHD Doctor Discussion Guide.
