Hi. My husband haas ADHD that was diagnosed at age 33. We now have two kids, ages 4 and 2. I have read on this site that there is a strong environmental component, but I don't really know what that means specifically. What I'm wondering, are there things I can do in our household that would help my children at this stage? Neither has a diagnosis and I don't have any particular concerns. If there's anything I can do to help them, (not get ADHD? present more mildly? cope with it if they ever are diagnosed?) I want to do it.
I would also be interested in hearing what I should be watching for in my children. In so many things, the earlier people are diagnosed the better, so I don't want them to go until age 33 before they find out they have ADHD.
