Health Tip: Manage ADHD In Children
(HealthDay News) -- Attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) tends to make a person more impulsive, inattentive and hyperactive.
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration suggests how to help manage ADHD in children:
Train parents, teachers and other caregivers in a setting where problem behaviors often occur.
Behavior therapy to teach the child new behavior to replace undesirable conduct.
Medication, often stimulants, that serve to increase brain chemicals involved in thinking and paying attention.
