ers are believed to play a role in behaviors like attention and movement. Much like height or eye color, ADHD can be inherited. Studies suggest that 76 percent of ADHD is linked to family genetics. So the condition is more common among people who have a close relative with ADHD. Adults with ADHD have a 50 percent chance of passing it on to their children.
