Traumatic brain injury can cause ADHD

Scientists have discovered that there are at least two forms of ADHD: one caused by a traumatic brain injury (even a mild one) and the other caused by genetic factors. While the study reporting these findings discussed the implications for children who suffer mild traumatic brain injuries in such things as contact sports, the findings may also help explain why some children who appear to recover from a traumatic brain injury at birth subsequently go on to develop ADHD. If your child suffered a brain injury at birth and appears to have recovered, you may want to discuss this study with your pediatrician so steps can be taken to monitor for ADHD.
