Effective treatment of AD/HD in children and teens requires a comprehensive approach that professionals call multimodal. This means that the best outcomes are achieved when multiple interventions work together as part of a comprehensive treatment plan. The elements of a multimodal treatment approach include:
â€¢Â Parent training
â€¢Â Behavioral intervention strategies
â€¢Â An appropriate educational program
â€¢Â Education regarding AD/HD
â€¢Â Medication, when necessary
Positive behavior intervention can be critical. The most important techniques are consistency and positive reinforcement, in which the child is rewarded for desired behavior.
