Do you know that one in four kids on ADHD medicines gets therapy too?

According to a study, most kids in the U.S. who take medication for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are not getting behavioral counseling therapy as well.

Guidelines don’t require behavioral therapy for treating children with ADHD. For teens, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that doctors prescribe approved medications, like Adderall or Ritalin, says they may also prescribe behavior therapy, and suggests that combining the two is preferable. For elementary school-age kids, AAP recommends medication and/or therapy.

Adding therapy to medication can help some kids perform better in school, make parents more satisfied and actually lower the dose of stimulant medication kids need.
