Your at risk child's needs may be different from those of other children!
Recent scientific studies show that genetics puts a child at substantial risk for developing ADHD, addiction and antisocial behavior. But, a child's early environment can either magnify or reduce his risk.

Often, people whose biologic relatives have ADHD, addiction or antisocial behavior also suffer with one or all of these disorders. This is because there is a genetic connection between all of these disorders.

What is the nature of the genetic connection between ADHD, addiction and antisocial behavior? Read the material in this site and you will find out. It is as if the same underlying problems lead to these three disorders.

The problems that cause ADHD, Addiction and Antisocial behavior occur in three specific areas we have called the Inner Triangle. The Inner Triangle is made up of our Ability to Love, Impulse Control, and Moral Reasoning. Adults and children with antisocial behavior and addiction have difficulties with all three sides of the Inner Triangle. Impairment in Impulse Control defines and causes ADHD.
