Certain chemicals contribute to psychiatric disorders such as ADHD by disrupting brain development. One of those toxins is lead. If your child has an elevated blood lead level, call our lead poison lawyers in LA today: 866-548-6137

It is normal for children to display different behaviors as they grow older. Whether that is due to external influences, exploration of boundaries, or unidentified medical concerns, parents typically observe their children learning new things and responding to numerous situations in a variety of ways.

But in some cases, your child may exhibit undesirable behaviors.

If they begin to fidget nonstop, cannot finish their tasks, or have increasing trouble with waiting for their turn, they could be suffering from a medical condition. And if your child receives a diagnosis of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), lead poisoning could be to blame.

Lead poisoning is caused by exposure to deteriorated lead-based paint

Certain chemicals contribute to psychiatric disorders such as ADHD by disrupting brain development. One of those toxins is lead from deteriorated lead-based paint in homes built prior to 1978.

Low-income boys are at risk of exposure to lead

While having elevated levels of lead in the blood does not necessarily mean your child will develop ADHD, it increases the probability. The signature deficits caused by lead poisoning in children are:

  • Reduced IQ
  • ADHD
  • Language and speech delays
  • Aggression
  • Delayed puberty

If you begin to wonder why your child can no longer focus, follow directions or control their emotions, ask your pediatrician to test your child for lead poisoning. Blood lead can be tested with a simple blood test.
