Traumatic stress and ADHD share significant associations, according to a growing body of research on trauma and childhood maltreatment.

Studies show that people with ADHD score higher than their neurotypical peers on the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) questionnaire1, which measures the impact of negative, stressful, or traumatic events on well-being.

This means that they are likely to report troubling events like domestic violence, caregiver substance abuse, physical or sexual abuse, neglect, mental illness, poverty, and community violence.
