The most effective treatment of ADHD involves a range of interventions often referred to as the 'multi-modal' approach.
- Family support
- Educational support
- Counselling/behavioural management
- Occupational therapy
- Speech and language therapy
Note: for people with food sensitivities in addition to their ADHD, diet modification can be used as an additional therapy. Diet modification in itself is not a treatment for ADHD.
ADHD rarely ever exists by itself. Many people have co-existing conditions and issues such as:
- learning disorders
- speech problems
- conduct disorders
- depression and anxiety problems
- poor self esteem
- difficulties with assertiveness
- poor social skills
