ADHD is a very complex interaction of many genes located throughout the brain. Educating oourself about ADHD will equip us to be a strong advocate for our child as he moves from one developmental stage to the next. As a parent, the key to explaining ADHD to others is to first understand it using the latest research and thinking in the field.
