Project Title: Predicting the Probability of A.D.D.



We are going to be studying how attention deficit disorder (ADD) is passed from parent to offspring. To do this we will be finding factors such as: genetics, enviromental factors, drug abuse, a pregnant mother drinking, parents past substance abuse, the age of the parents, and the parents habits (sleeping, eating, drinking, etc.). We will then make a mathematical model that will relate these factors to children with ADD, then convert our model to utilize a computer program to predict the probability of ADD being passed on to children as a result of the factors listed above, or others. This information may be helpful in decreasing the percentage of ADD in the nation.
