ADHD child can be treated the disease causes abnormal electrical impulses in brain and the child needs counseling as well Certain parts of the brain may be less active or smaller in children with ADHD than those without the disorder. The brain chemical dopamine, which carries signals between nerves in the brain and is linked to movement, sleep, mood, attention, and learning, may also play a role.
