Looking Out for the Signs of ADHD in Children
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder — formerly known as attention deficit disorder (ADD) — is a behavioral disorder that may or may not be caused by neurological injuries. Children with ADHD typically have serious difficulty with basic functions such as:
- Sitting still in class or at the dinner table
- Concentrating on homework
- Getting along with other children
Of course, many children without ADHD also have these problems. Diagnosing ADHD is a complex process that usually involves a neuropsychological psychiatric assessment by a qualified specialist.
There are many factors that can cause attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, but in children who have a history of lead exposure, lead poisoning is known to be a cause of ADHD.
Seeking Compensation for the Effects of Lead Poisoning
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder causes learning disabilities and other problems that can have a real impact on children’s ability to function in society, including making it difficult or even impossible for the child to complete high school. If your child has ADHD as a result of lead poisoning, call our lead poisoning attorney today, because you and your child deserve restitution for the health and abilities lost or challenged by this condition.
