Is It Adult ADHD? A Basic Primer
ADHD is usually considered a childhood disorder, so symptoms in adults are often overlooked, even though an estimated four percent of the adult population meets the criteria.
The Causes of ADHD
ADHD is a neurologically based condition caused by a shortage of the neurotransmitters norepinephrine and dopamine in the brain, and the inability of the brain to transmit these chemicals to the brain's neurons. ADHD is not caused by poor parenting, too much sugar, or laziness.
