Answer

The educational requirements of these patients and their family members are high. Family members include parents and siblings of children, spouses and children of adults, and grown children of elderly patients. Encouragement of medication use, education on time structuring and behavioral control, social skill training, and frequent cognitive redirecting is needed.

For patient education resources, see the Mental Health Center, as well as ADHD in Children, Adult ADHD, and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in Teens.
