Brief Answer:
It did not cause the issues

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. Let me assure you that fitting a helmet will only reshape the skull but will not compress upon the brain. Therefore it has no relationship with the diagnosis of ADHD, ODD and anxiety.

Let me know if I could help further.
