ADHD is Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder.

ADHD is one of the most common neurodevelopmental disorders of childhood. It is usually first diagnosed in childhood and often lasts into adulthood. Children with ADHD may have trouble paying attention, controlling impulsive behaviors (may act without thinking about what the result will be), or be overly active.

In therapy, kids learn to better deal with the symptoms of ADHD, such as listening, paying attention, and being more organized.

Some kids with ADHD also get another type of therapy called occupational therapy. 

Treatment for ADHD usually includes medicine. Medicines boost the brain's ability to pay attention, use self-control, and fidget less. 

What does therapy do for ADHD?

Therapy helps kids with ADHD do better in school and at home. For example, they learn how to:

  • be better organized
  • focus on schoolwork
  • listen and pay attention better
  • get along better with others
  • have fewer behavior problems

Some kids need therapy to help ease difficult emotions caused by ADHD. For example, kids might lose confidence or feel like they're disappointing others. Some kids become depressed, anxious, angry, or frustrated.

When kids learn skills to manage ADHD, they do better. Therapy also helps kids feel happier and more confident.

How does ADHD therapy Work?

  • A positive relationship with the therapist helps kids feel encouraged.
  • Kids learn by doing activities like drawing, playing, and talking. 
  • Types of therapy include behavior therapy and social skills training.
  • Depending on the child's age, a therapist might meet with the child and parent together, or with the child alone. When parents work with

  • Talking and listening. 
  • Playing with a purpose. 
  • Doing activities that teach lessons. 
  • Practicing new skills. 
  • Problem solving. 
  • Behavior therapy. 
  • Social skills training.
