Your Attention Deficit Disorder information source for
When it comes to the treatment of Attention Deficit Disorder - ADD ADHD - or with problems of Attention, Impulse Control, Over-Activity, and/or Learning Problems in "the real world," there are a number of approaches to treatment that may work well. The information provided has either been gleaned from research on Attention Deficit Disorder - ADD ADHD - treatment interventions, or it is from our experience in a clinical setting treating Attention Deficit Disorder patients.
Any of these interventions might work for you, or not. Each intervention that is discussed will work for some, perhaps most, of those who try them.
We believe that the interventions below are all effective to one degree or another with problems with Attention, Impulse Control, Over-Activity, and/or Learning Problems. However, we cannot say that the interventions can help individuals with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder - ADD ADHD. To say that might make the FDA upset. Please forgive the "game playing" that is required below.
Parents should try the treatment that might be most effective for their child. Every child is different. For unknown reasons, some children respond very well to diet, and some do not. Some respond very well to medicine, and some do not.
Every child is different. As a result, we recommend that you look carefully at each intervention listed below, and then also take a hard look at 1) your child, 2) your finances, 3) your insurance coverage, 4) your present eating habits, and 5) the amount of "spare time" that you have in your life to do what it will take to make some of these interventions work.
Another disclaimer: We are not medical doctors. All of the following information is from our observations of treatment interventions given to our patients over the past fifteen years. Don't be afraid to talk with your physician, psychologist, etc., about our observations. This information is for the sake of education and discussion. We are not prescribing treatment across the internet.
