Signs and Symptoms of ADD and ADHD
Evidence of ADD and ADHD is often noticed when children and adolescents are sent to school. Kids with attention deficit disorders often get into trouble for:
- Constant fidgeting
- Speaking at inappropriate times
- Making compulsive or rash decisions
- Interrupting others
- Being unable to sit still
People with attention deficit disorders are often forgetful, frequently misplace or lose important items, and struggle with time management. When ADD and ADHD are untreated, these same challenges can continue throughout their lives.
The exact causes of ADD and ADHD are unknown. However, certain environmental and lifestyle factors are believed to contribute to the development of these illnesses. They include:
- Genetic predisposition (having one or more family members with attention disorders)
- Exposure to toxins
- Brain trauma
When mothers drink or use tobacco during pregnancy or while breastfeeding, this is believed to contribute to the development of attention deficit disorders.
