Attention Deficit Disorder and Criminal Activity is a subject which researchers are just beginning to look into based on the amount of criminals who are currently suffering from ADD or ADHD and the amount of juvenile delinquents who are suffering from ADD and ADHD.
When looking into a possible link between ADD/ADHD and criminal activity it is important to fully understand what ADD/ADHD is. This slide gives an overview of the key points of ADD and ADHD.
The importance a person’s quality of life has on the decisions they make throughout life.
Long term effects of having ADD or ADHD.
Individuals who suffer from ADD or ADHD are more likely to commit the following criminal activity.
Seeing how treatment often only slightly increases the quality of life of an individual suffering from this condition it is important to also look at the side effects of the medications.
Although there appears to be a strong link between those who suffer from ADD/ADHD and criminal activity there are other things to consider as not every person who suffers from ADD/ADHD ends up on a path of criminal activity.
Since it is apparent that there is a link between ADD/ADHD and Criminal Activity it is important to continue research and expand the research to include more detailed theories so as to have a better understanding of how significant the link between the two is.
