Finding effective ADD treatment is not easy. Speaking as a doctor who specializes in treating Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and as the mother of a son with ADHD, I know the number of ADHD treatment options can be overwhelming.
The most common treatment for ADHD in children is medication. While ADHD medications can be effective from some, they also have drawbacks including nasty side effects and they often become less effective over time as the body develops tolerance.
My son did not tolerate Ritalin and Adderall very well, so I knew I had to make
some changes. I used simple approaches that helped my son make dramatic
improvements in his grades and behavior, which also created a more peaceful home life for the entire family.
The good news is that anyone can learn how to do this, whether you are a parent looking to help a child with ADHD, or an adult suffering from ADHD.
Listed below are highly recommended at-home ADHD treatment guides/programs for children and adults, reviews of the best ADHD treatments, how to calm hyperactive children, tips for relieving ADHD symptoms using a variety of mostly natural approaches, and more.
In my clinical opinion, the Total Focus Program is the gold standard of ADD treatment programs. It is an easy to follow ADD treatment guide designed to be used in the comfort of home.
It teaches parents everything about ADHD, how to manage challenging behaviors, and how to improve focus, attention, and grades.
It comes with a free trial, and even includes a parent hotline for those times when you need immediate phone support. No other behavioral program matches this level of support.
I have used it with my own son and his behavior and grades improved dramatically. He reported increased ability to focus and he began to gain more self-confidence. For more information about this program, read my full review here.
Overcoming ADHD is a helpful program that was specifically created for parents of children suffering from ADHD. It teaches parents about ADD/ADHD, how to best help their children, natural treatment options, and perhaps most important: how to retain their sanity during the challenging process.
It comes with free bonus guides including inspirational stories about overcoming adversity, an extended interview with expert Carla Hannaford, a guide on how the brain learns and the importance of play, and more.
Bottom line:: It empowers parents to help their child overcome ADHD in a relaxed ("no need to panic or get overwhelmed") and easy-to-follow fashion.
I can't ignore adults suffering with ADHD. The How To Conquer ADD/ADHD program is an ADHD treatment program developed by an adult with ADHD. It addresses all of those factors that make ADHD so challenging for adults.
It helps adult ADHD sufferers get organized, maintain a schedule, job, manage money, maintain household responsibilities, resolve relationship problems, raise children while suffering with ADHD, how to avoid substance abuse or other impulsive or addictive behaviors, etc.
important to note that this guide, particularly the sections about
getting organized and money management, are helpful for most adults, not
just those with ADHD.
