Has your child's head been injured? Has he or she had a change in personality? There could be a reason for this change if the recent study published in the Journal of Psychiatric Research is believed. According to the study, which followed adults who had suffered brain injuries, many also suffered attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD. The data suggests that there is an association between the two conditions.
In fact, the co-principal investigator claims that adults with traumatic brain injuries are over twice as likely to suffer from ADHD. ADHD causes behaviors such as impulsive acts or difficulty paying and sustaining attention. Usually, children develop the disorder and then it continues into adulthood.
