What Are the Most Common Treatment for ADHD?

Q: My 8-year-old son behaves as if he has ADHD. What’s the treatment for ADHD?

A: Of course, you must take your son to see a doctor at first to make it clear whether he has ADHD or not.

Generally ADHD treatment consists of medication and behavioral therapy. Behavioral therapies are progressed similarly. They are programs of rewards for appropriate behavior and consequences for inappropriate behavior, or a system to help inattentive children get organized. Besides families, teachers and the school also play an important role in a child’s behavioral therapy.

If you opt for medication treatment, you can take your child to see a pediatrician, a pediatric psychiatrist, or a neurologist. They may prescribe medicines for him after their diagnosis.
