Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder or ADHD is something that is very common among adolescents and children. There are a few possibilities of the causes of ADHD, but one of the main ones that will be referenced is biological. Health professionals find that biological factors give certain individuals a predetermined possibility of displaying signs of ADHD. Other causes for ADHD are family dysfunction or high stress from something else outside of family.  (Comer & Comer., 2021). With ADHD, drug treatment is very common, which sees patients taking medication as a means to slow down the mind long enough to focus on certain tasks. Another treatment is cognitive behavioral therapy, which focuses on specific behaviors and how they can be changed. Typically, the treatments are completed together.

 Children are naturally high energy, but some have other problems which prevent them in being able to engage properly. ADHD makes a child sitting still is a challenge and difficulty resisting temptation (2021).  Doing homework or even sitting still long enough to eat can get a child scolded quite often. Social skills are absent with interrupting, grabbing, climbing, or speaking at the wrong times are other problems (2021).  The hope is they will grow out of it. Studies continue but believed to have the cause of genetics, exposure to toxic environmental factors such as lead (2021).  Other beliefs are from pregnant mothers drinking alcohol or smoking which can result in premature delivery with low birth rate (2021). Other views not supported are too much screen time or family problems. Medication is well known for treating ADHD but behavior therapy for both child and parents is helpful. As with any child having healthy habits of diet, exercise, and sleep is also recommended (2021).

 Autism spectrum disorder causes hardship when it comes to social interactions, communicating with others, behavior, and learning (Austims spectrum disorder, n.d.). It is a neurodevelopment disorder that may develop in early childhood. The cause of ASD is hereditary/genetics. Gene anomaly seems to be a common factor when a child is diagnosed with ASD. Symptoms can vary from case to case but overall include withdrawl from participation, having difficulty communicating effectively, repetitive behaviors, and expressing emotions when there is a change to a routine. Although there is currently no cure for ASD, therapies and behavioral interventions aid children to gain social and language skills that in return help with their behavior and emotional display. Medicine is use a treatment and not a cure for ASD. Medication helps in preventing seizures and negative behavior.
