ADHD Treatment in Children 

Treating ADHD in children involves a comprehensive approach. After a thorough evaluation by a pediatrician, which includes reviewing the child's medical history, behaviors, and symptoms, we'll develop a treatment plan together. ADHD treatment may include behavioral interventions, such as parent training, behavioral therapy, and school-based accommodations. We may also recommend medications, such as stimulant medications like methylphenidate or amphetamine, which can help improve attention, focus, and impulse control.

Our pediatrician will work closely with the child and their family to monitor the effectiveness and side effects of medication, adjusting the dosage as needed. Additionally, our pediatrician may provide education and support to help parents better understand and manage their child's ADHD, including strategies for creating routines, addressing behavior, and improving communication skills. Regular follow-up appointments are necessary to assess progress. With a collaborative approach between the child, parents, and pediatrician, ADHD treatment can help improve the child's functioning and quality of life.
