Treatment for ADHD

The most effective treatment of ADHD involves a range of interventions often referred to as the 'multi-modal' approach.

- Family support
- Educational support
- Medication
- 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.

Related & Co-existing Conditions

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
