Sample text

Reviewing Past Theories Since the day in 1902 that British physician George Frederic Still lectured about patients he had seen with symptoms of AD/HD, numerous theories about the cause of AD/HD have been considered. Some of these theories have been based on behavioral problems (bad parenting, willful children), but many have viewed AD/HD as having some biological basis. (Dr. ) If you know someone with AD/HD (which we assume, or else you have curious reading habits), the focus on biological causes shouldn’t surprise you.

However, some enlightening research has been done, and solid theories exist about how AD/HD comes to be. In this chapter, we review several theories about the causes of AD/HD — both those that have broken new ground and others that have severely missed the mark. We also explain some studies that indicate that AD/HD has a biological cause and demonstrate how all this research is essentially pointing to the same basic cause. One of the immutable facts of life is that everyone has an opinion. Therefore, we also use this chapter to offer our opinion (whether you want it or not) of where all this AD/HD research is heading and what it means to the bottom line: What’s the best way to treat this condition?

Several studies by Dr. Joseph Biederman and his colleagues at the Massachusetts General Hospital have shown that AD/HD runs in families. In one study, Dr. Biederman and his colleagues found that first-degree relatives (parents or siblings) of someone with AD/HD have a five times greater chance of also having AD/HD than someone who has no close relatives with the condition. Studies by Dr. Dennis Cantwell on adopted children with the hyperactive/ impulsive type of AD/HD found that these children resemble their biological parents more than their adoptive parents in their hyperactivity.
