Research Suggests Link between Traumatic Brain Injury and ADHD

Research Suggests Link between Traumatic Brain Injury and ADHD

A new study was recently published by researchers from Ohio and Canada in JAMA Pediatrics suggesting that children who suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) were more than 3 times as likely to develop attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) than kids with other injuries. The study, published in March 2018, examined data from 187 children between the ages of three and seven who had been hospitalized overnight for a TBI (which totaled 81 children) or other orthopedic injury (the remaining 106 children). None of the children studied had been diagnosed with ADHD prior to their injuries.

The team of researchers noted that many of the children in the study developed ADHD closer to their teenage years—nearly a decade after the injuries occurred.  “I think it is crucial that we are aware of these symptoms and addressing if they require medical or behavioral treatment in order to help these children be successful in school, and this study helps raise that awareness,” lead researcher Dr. Megan Narad said.
