What causes ADHD?
The different parts of our brains talk to each other all the time. Having ADHD means that some parts of our brain talk in a different way to other people, in particular, areas that control memory, attention and behaviour.
These differences in your brain can make some things harder for you – like concentrating at school, wanting to fidget when you should be sitting still, or shouting out when you should be listening.
However, the way your brain works in ADHD may also make you more creative, better at problem solving, or able to do lots of things at once.
