You can help your young child with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) by learning parenting strategies that encourage positive behaviors and discourage negative ones.
Children with ADHD often show behaviors that can be very disruptive to others. Behavior therapy is a treatment option that can help reduce these disruptive behaviors.
ADHD often occurs with other disorders. Many children with ADHD have other disorders as well as ADHD, such as behavior or conduct problems, learning disorders, anxiety and depression.
The symptoms of ADHD, such as inability to pay attention, difficulty sitting still, and difficulty controlling impulses, can make it hard for children with this diagnosis to do well in school.
This information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provides you with information about treatment options for ADHD.
