How Effective Are the Treatment Options for Children with ADHD?
4 of 5
Multiple school-based interventions exist for ADHD, including classroom-based special education services, individualized student training, and specialized teacher training.
Specialized classroom environments may have teachers and aides specifically trained and supervised by child psychologists, using behavioral techniques and unique treatment curriculums. Use of communication tools, such as daily school behavior report cards, facilitates communication about behavior trends in children. Positive reinforcement, peer-tutoring, and organizational skills training are other school-based approaches for children with ADHD.
CEPAC's Stance on School-Based Approaches:
- School-based interventions are an especially important component of ADHD treatment, as they may provide the only access to behavioral/psychosocial interventions for children from low-income households and/or rural areas.
