JAMA 1998;279:1100.Evidence Genetics: Evidence Genetics Numerous twin studies report the average heritability index to be approximately 0.75 across various sets of diagnostic criteria Adoption and family studies further support the genetic basis for ADHD Stressors and bad parenting can exacerbate impairment but do not cause ADHD Todd.
