The ADHD Smarter Parenting’s Podcast

Ep #2: Which is best? Behavior interventions or medication

April 7, 2019

Behavior interventions or medication is a polarizing topic. Many believe that ADHD drugs are the cure-all for negative ADHD behaviors and that by giving their child ADHD medication, their child will be “normal.” There may be times when medication has its place in ADHD treatment, but it is not the cure-all. Parents need to be aware of the downsides of drugs and have an honest conversation with their doctor as they determine what ADHD treatment is best for their child.

No matter what you decide to do with medication, behavior interventions should always be part of your child’s ADHD treatment plan. Behavior modification will give your child the tools for long-term success. Behavior modification will allow your child to understand how to behave in various situations, reducing problem behavior.
