Combined Therapy


Some parents of children with ADHD are advised to use combined therapy — a combination of behavioral therapies and medication, particularly for children with other psychiatric issues). Behavioral therapies can include parent-behavior training, school-based interventions, or other forms of therapy, such as individual psychotherapy, play therapy, or cognitive behavioral therapy.

CEPAC's Stance on Combined Therapy:

  • For children under age 6, there is not enough long-term evidence to indicate that combined therapy is as good as or better than medication alone.
  • For children over age 6, combined therapy is better than medication alone.
