Question

Hannah asked:

And would you say that medication of these children in addition to these strategies that you adopt with teachers and also families, would you say that combination of all three of those are required?

Answer

Tom -   I think that’s the key to any of the guidelines associated with intervention to support children with ADHD.  If medication is involved, it needs to be as part of a coherent integrated package that might involve psychological or behavioural interventions, educational advise, and environmental changes.  So, key to supporting children with ADHD with or without medication often involves managing the environment around them.
