Causes of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

  • ADHD is partly hereditary. This means that ADHD can be transferred through the parents. Sometimes children with ADHD have one or more family members with characteristics of ADHD. Children with ADHD benefit from an environment that helps them to develop, concentrate and learn as well as possible. This determines how much trouble they suffer and what the consequences are for their development.
  • We know that the construction of the brain is something different in people with ADHD. For example, the front part of the brain (frontal lobe) and the small brain (cerebellum) are on average slightly smaller in people with ADHD. We also think that the front parts of the brain work less well with deeper parts of the brain. It is possible that the cooperation with the cerebellar is less successful as a result.
  • Several substances are involved in the collaboration of the brain cells in different parts of the brain, such as dopamine and norepinephrine. In someone with ADHD the balance between these substances in the brain is disturbed.

  • In ADHD, children can focus and hold their attention less well. Children with ADHD are also often more impulsive and motor-restless than other children. They may also have problems with planning and performing tasks.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) Treatment

Treatment plan

If you or your child have ADHD, then we think together with you and your child about an appropriate form of treatment or help. In a treatment plan, together with you and your child, we set out which goals we will work for and what resources we use to achieve this.


Types of treatments that we do are:

  • Medication
Medications ensure that your child is less busy and impulsive and that attention and concentration improve. Medications can not cure ADHD, but can help to deal with it more easily.
  • Psychoeducation
If you are knowledgeable about ADHD, you can better understand the problems associated with it. The attending physician and the parent counselor (or the home supervisor) can give you information about ADHD.
  • Parental / family guidance
You may still have questions after the diagnosis. You can ask a parent counselor. You can then discuss:

- What it means for you and your family that someone in the ADHD family has
- Which approach seems best for you and / or your child and the environment
- In which cases you can use extra help
- How to best deal in difficult parenting situations

  • Other forms of treatment 
Sometimes individual treatment or group treatment is best. More intensive forms of treatment are also possible. Think of day treatment or a short-term admission.
