In brief: Yes

Adhd is an inherited neurobiological disorder. The major neurologic impairment is difficulty learning & applying learned data.
Social skill deficiency is a result of poor observational unstructured learning. Fixing requires learning social skills once again. This is done with medication & counseling, not with silly dietary restrictions.

I have answered this many times.
The major cause of adhd, add and other similar conditions is high calorie malnutrition, particularly all the sugar "junk". It can be compared with choking a car engine where gas is incompletely burned. Brain function depends on oxidative metabolism. See my blog "oxygen the spark of life" that you can google.
