Stimulant medications, psychotherapy, and behavioral training can be helpful to reduce symptoms and improve functioning for those with ADHD. Therapists can help teach children with ADHD social skills and how to respond appropriately in different situations. Family therapy can help improve interactions with the child with ADHD and help parents with skills they need to encourage positive behavior in their child. There are also support groups that may help connect families to others with similar concerns.
