It was previously believed that ADD was due to head traumas and a small number is still affecte dthis way. There is no tried and tested way to disclose the cause in any one individual

Why collect data for Attention Disorder Hyperactivity Deficit and Attention Deficit Disorder?

Scientists are not sure what causes ADHD, although many studies suggest that genes play a large role. Like many other illnesses, ADHD probably results from a combination of factors. In addition to genetics, researchers are looking at possible environmental factors, and are studying how brain injuries, nutrition, and the social environment might contribute to ADHD.

What is the etiology of ADHD?

I wish science had an answer for you, but unfortunately we do not. The monozygotic and dizygotic concordance of this disease are 50-80% and 25-35% respectively. In simple language this means if your identical twin (monozygotic, or meaning you share the same genetic map) had ADHD , still there is only 50% chance that you might have ADHD. This means there are more than genetic influences, which could include the risks from the environment. So in simple terms: this is work under a lot of research at this time, and we don't know what causes ADHD, but there is a heavy influence of genetics in this.
