ADHD Medications and Treatment Options


There are different types of medications as well as an array of treatments that may help children with Attention Deficit Disorder focus and interact more effectively with their classmates, family and teachers.

Children with ADD may be brighter as well as more energetic than their classmates, but have difficulty concentrating and learning that has caused them to feel unsuccessful and embarrassed. They may be called lazy or defiant, and are often undiagnosed as they struggle to achieve academic goals.

Some children are misdiagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder, showing symptoms of other conditions that are less familiar to parents, educators, and even medical professionals.

Sometimes children with ADD have hyperactivity disorder, too. This is known as ADHD - Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Some medications, especially those that are stimulants for treating hyperactivity, may not be appropriate for children with ADD. It is recommended that all children who are prescribed stimulant medications have an electrocardiogram to rule out non-symptomatic heart problems.

Non-medication treatments and accommodations for children with ADD should build their self confidence and be respectful of their talents, abilities, and personalities. While safety is a prime concern where ADD leads to impulsive behavior, their creativity and individual differences should be nurtured.

Every child does not need to learn in the same way as most of their classmates. Finding a way to build on a child's strengths and offering them the tools they need to achieve their goals benefits everyone by allowing them to reach their full potential.

Browse at your public library, local bookstore, or online retailer for more information about ADHD - Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.
