Answer

Behavioral psychotherapy often is effective when used in combination with an effective medication regimen. Behavioral therapy or modification programs can help diminish uncertain expectations and increase organization.

Working with parents and schools to ensure environments conducive to focus and attention is necessary.

For adults with ADHD, working to establish ways of decreasing distractions and improving organizational skills may be helpful.
