Risk Factors and Causes

TRANSCRIPT

Dr. Patel
Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD, is considered a neurodevelopmental disorder. Mr. Willis, can you tell us what this means?

Mr. Willis
Sure, Dr. Patel. Neurodevelopmental disorders typically become evident in early childhood, and they are marked by deficits or impairments of personal, social, or intellectual development.

One of the most substantial risk factors for neurodevelopmental disorders is genetics. ADHD often runs in families.
