Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) may be brought on by experiencing stress in infancy, claims a leading parenting expert.

According to psychologist, parent educator and author of the best-selling Raising Boys, Steve Biddulph, new research suggests factors such as “stress at home and parents not meeting children’s needs early in life” could play a role in causing ADHD.

Previously it was thought that the behavioural disorder – typically characterised by inattentiveness, hyperactivity and impulsiveness – was caused by genetics and chemical imbalances in the brain.
