Is There a Link Between ADHD and Aggression?
Suppose a child or adult with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder lashes out to a friend, family member or teacher on a regular basis. Perhaps he or she abruptly tosses homework to the floor then stomps off, or maybe someone uses foul language in response to a bothersome situation. Could it be that the person with ADHD who regularly behaves in such a manner struggles to keep aggression under control? Is there a link between the two?
