For ADHD in Kids, Parents Should Start With Behavior Therapy, Not Drugs Behavior modification therapy is preferable to drugs for treating children 2 to 5 years old who have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, U.S. health officials say. TUESDAY, May 3, 2016 (HealthDay News) Behavior modification therapy is preferable to drugs for treating children 2 to 5 years old who have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, U.S. health. In 2011, the American Academy of Pediatrics also recommended that before giving medicine to a young child, parents should be referred for training in behavior therapy.

But according to the new CDC report, about 75 percent of young children being treated for ADHD are started on drugs, and only about half get any type of psychological services, including behavior therapy. ADHD News & Research Parents Raising Children with ADHD: Start with Behavior Therapy, Not Medication A new report released by the CDC shows the gap between medication use and recommended behavioral therapy for young children with ADHD. In 2011, the American Academy of Pediatrics also recommended that before giving medicine to a young child, parents should be referred for training in behavior therapy. But according to the new CDC report, about 75 percent of young children being treated for ADHD are started on drugs, and only about half get any type of psychological services, including behavior therapy. TUESDAY, May 3, 2016 Behavior modification therapy is preferable to drugs for treating children 2 to 5 years old who have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, U.S. health officials say.

Used with or without medication, behavioral therapy can help your child curb symptoms of hyperactivity, impulsivity, and inattentiveness. It can help your child do better in school, but you have to. Experts recommend that healthcare providers refer parents of children younger than 12 years old for training in behavior therapy. For children younger than 6 years old, parent training in behavior management should be tried before prescribing ADHD medicine.

In children age six and older, the guidelines say that either behavior therapy or medication alone can be helpful in treating ADHD, and a combination of treatments may be best. New research indicates that for all children with ADHD — including those age six and older — starting treatment with BPT is the best strategy. Children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are often constantly moving or fidgeting, have trouble focusing, and struggle to process information as rapidly or correctly as other children.

This can affect how they interpret the consequences of their behavior, which can be frustrating for parents and teachers.

Medication is considered to be the most effective method of treating ADHD.15 However, behavioral therapy for parents of children with ADHD may also be useful to assist parents in managing their children most effectively.

Because these associated features, together with family function, robustly predict longterm outcome of children with ADHD, treatment with stimulants alone may not significantly improve outcomes for these children.

While medications have proven to be of short term benefit for children with ADHD, longitudinal studies reveal that medication is only one aspect of treatment and that without behavioral interventions, the child’s difficulties at home and at school are likely to persist.

Given that stimulant medications have proven to be among the most effective treatments for these children (Connor, 2006), clinicians should discuss this treatment with parents upon making the diagnosis of ADHD.

Recent research by NIMH suggests that these medicines may also help children with an accompanying conduct disorder to control their impulsive, destructive behaviors.

Parents need to be open to all possible strategies to treat ADHD (medication, child and associated family therapy, and communication with school personnel).

However, parental concerns about the rising rate of stimulant prescription, potential sideeffects of long-term medication, and the growing use of psychostimulant medication in preschool children make professional consultation for ADHD difficulties an option of last resort.

Further, it suggests it is reasonable to consider medication as first-line treatment for children with ADHD and, if carefully monitored, medication alone without intensive behavioural intervention may be adequate.

With older children and adolescents, it is important to discuss the use of medication with them and to explain its rationale in the treatment of ADHD.

Despite the concern that ADHD may increase the risk of abuse in adolescents and young adults (or their associates), to date there is no clear evidence that stimulanttreated ADHD children abuse prescribed medication when appropriately diagnosed and carefully monitored.

  • I’m a personality focused on growth and learning. I prefer holistic treatment.
    I tried everything: mindfulness, meditation, yoga, healthy lifestyle.
    But still I can’t focus 200% on my work. What to do next?

  • Kyle is sooooo my daughter
    Esp the part that he’s aware of what he does
    She knows how to push buttons
    Bully kids

    I can understand his mom

  • Thanks for these wise suggestions. The people who clicked the thumb down for this video are the ones who most need the advice it contains.

  • I am not in school anymore cuz I just can’t handle it anymore cuz I couldn’t concentrate on anything my classmates knew I had trouble with it and I purposely made me not be able to concentrate and pick tell me about it

  • Regarding Kyle, I’m going to keep my comments to myself for the most part. And God bless the parents that can care for and love the child with such a disability.

  • Hello Doctor. My child sleeps well, drinks plenty of water too. But as ADHD is the problem, she cannot sit in one place, forget meditating…. Please suggest any other options.

  • Stop talking about ADHD as if it was a geniune and established physical condition. It is a fictional creation a social construction.

  • tdlr:
    — behavioral therapy
    — medications
    — get more sleep
    — drink water
    — excercise
    — meditate (i play animal crossing fishing game without the music and ramble about whatever i want usually whatever is wrong that day to find solutions)

  • Very nice information. In Ayurvedic system of medicine, the treatment of ADHD is possible without any side effects. Planet Ayurveda offers Brahmi and Gotukola Capsules for the effective management of ADHD.

  • I’m an adult with ADHD, and I took Adderall during periods when my executive dysfunction gets especially bad, but I was never on meds as a kid and I would never consider putting my kid on stimulant medication for ADHD. Adderall is hell on your body. I ended up getting dependent and had to stop taking it

  • 1. Earthing. Sleep grounded.
    2. Ketogenic diet.
    3. Excercise
    4. Mindfulness.
    5. Vits, electrolytes, minerals.
    6. No sugar or stimulants.
    7. Get a purpose.
    8. White board on your wall with friends gratitude and list of what’s on today. Don’t sleep until everything done. Upon waking, up within 5 seconds, read board, excercise and meditate.
    9. Socialise.
    10. Smart phone limit.

  • I’m 24 I meditate, work out, spend 6-8 hours a day in the sun I’m a very natural person & still struggle heavily with concentration, I’m currently studying for COMPTIA Sec + and it is difficult to retain information. I find myself re-reading pages 6-7 times. Watching videos over and over. Things that sorta help are coffee,nicotine, cbd & cold showers, but nothing to the comparison of Vyvanse. I hate taking Meds and I wish there were better options for us.

  • Im having trouble with not taking my medicine because when i am not taking my medicine im unable to do anything like wake up on time.

  • I actually have mild Adhd, and the thing with me is that i feel alot comfortable sleeping more. And staying in my bed, i actually have created a comfort zone. Yes people this is Adhd.

  • I deal with this and feel like it’s getting worse, unless its things I care about. Couldn’t even fully pay attention to the whole video

  • ADHD or not, asking the child “please” is giving them a choice… Leave out the please and without being harsh, “make” them do what is asked…

  • My little nephew has this problem. The family doctor who has specialized in this problem told his Mom to put him on a swing or find a way of swinging his body. The swinging motion helps the neurons of the brain and if done every day it will help a hyperactive child to focus better. IT HAS WORKED on my nephew. He is concentrating much better is school now. He even got top of his class in mathematics and social studies. Kids no longer make fun of him.

  • Why is so much time and money going into understanding adhd or any mental illness… medication doesn’t cure it, only makes it worse, you got that right, and probably the best information you got was exercise, behaviour therapy doesn’t work, how can you even get a good night sleep when the mind never stops? How can you meditate when you can’t focus for more then 2 seconds? Why are these things even being talked about,
    Yet you fail to mention the main reason that causes a adhd, and other mental illnesses? And the only real way to fix it for good….

  • Thank you for the depths and information on this; it’s helping me relate to a loved one MUCH better; what’s not helpful to say/do/react, and what is useful..

  • Mujhe pura din physical aur mental tiredness rehti hai. Modern drugs Aderall aur Ritalin es problem me kaafi badhiya medicine hai jo students aur professionals bhi lete hai Lakin side effects bahot hai. Mujhe koi eski alternative homeopathic medicine bataye please.

  • I’m 13 with ADHD and sometimes I try so hard to focus it makes me want to punch something?? And I get bored way to quick and want to constantly do something different every second and moving around when typing this. I take medication but it isn’t enough any advice? I struggle in school and I don’t do online school help please any advice? I know I’m just 13 but I want to do something it is annoying. Any advice on how to help?

  • Doc prescribe stimulant only for my nephew, hes been on it for yrs now into teen. And guess wat. Sure he calmed down (zombified) but his growth is stunted, he very forgetful, and never seems completely there. The docs made him do an unnecessary tests too to c y his growth has stunted. (U f***en serious!? Duh!) Has to take another pill to increase his appetite cuz of stimulant, has to take a 3rd pill to help sleep cuz of stimulant… im sure he’ll need more ppls in life later cuz of pychological problems. -_ F***en pissed. Ppl need to stop the zombie, synthetic, pill madness and put more effort and work into actual parenting and schooling. (Bet if teachers had more power in school the so called unfocused disrespectful kids would listen up more.) Disgusting wat weve been putting kids thru.

  • I’m too scared to use Adderall for ADHD. I want to start out on Wellbutrin then try Desoxyn since it’s widely regarded as the safer alternative, surprisingly enough

  • I`ve had mild insomnia for several years getting up around Four am on many days. But just these current weeks, my resting time are just two to four hours only. It has become worse. This plan has helped me a lot in bettering my getting to sleep issue. This is aside from understanding the basics of sleeping. I discovered Google and found this guide on a website.. It is Zoey Sυnodoz
    take care

  • 2:32 this statistically makes me want to take twice the anount of alprazolam i took when i broke into my work, blacked tf out and took the big washer thing wipping…

  • Only people WITH adhd should be giving other people with adhd advice on treatment (trained professionals who specialize in adhd because they have adhd would help a lot too)

  • I had a horrible experience with Adderall. I actually have a few videos on youtube about my experience. It was a really hard battle for me to get get off. But i am so thankful i beat it and i have been completely off for 4 months! Best decision i ever made!

  • hi, i live in beirut lebanon, do you know professionals who can help here. i highly doubt that my son has ADHD.
    can adhd patients drive properly when tgey become adult

  • I have a 2.5 year old and he has not been diagnosed with anything but since I have been watching him a lot more at home during the pandemic, I have noticed behavior that is concerning. I will bring it up to his physician, but this was interesting to hear of some treatments. I already know that we need help of some kind and will probably seek training regardless of a diagnosis. Thanks!

  • Not a brain disorder.. I have it and I have odd. I used to get in trouble a lot my parents used to yell at me and told me I need to think before I talk or do anything I feel like my brain is don’t let me do that I’ve tried

  • Im worried my 3 year old might have adhd. Im super depressed that I could have potentially given my child a hard life due to her father’s gene (adhd.) Little things she does like squirming while laying down, fidgeting her feet with eating, getting up right after sitting down. I dunno if it is normal 3 year old behaviour or early signs of adhd. Im so damn upset I gave my child a hard life…i blame myself
    Will school really be a trial? I dont want my baby’s life to be difficult
    ❤Love from Australia����

  • My son has adhd and he’s 4yo.. when he got diagnosed,, I started to realise that I have some similar symptoms.. and I’m 32yo.. I really need help and no one in my family believe ADHD exist..

  • I’ve been putting it off.. I’m sure both my boys have it especially in my younger one because the doctor referred us.. I’ve put it off until now. It’s to much anymore

  • Music teaching method for everyone out here you tape your kid to a wall and you beat him with a baseball bat with nails they’ll never cry again

  • Why is there a background clicking sound and a guy spelling letters in the background of the narrator? Is this a way to bypass some kind of copyright check? Check minute 10:03, 16:31, 17:29… so weird out of 43:08.

  • I have adhs myself and I don’t take medication. My mother made me take some as I was a child. I can’t remember much about the details. And I don’t know if I want to.

    For me the fact that the children that taking this meds don’t even know about their disorder. I feel so bad for them. They don’t know what’s going on. They just take meds. And don’t know for what. Often they are even not able to say if they doesn’t like the effects of the meds.

    I don’t know if anyone thinks the same as me. But I do.

  • Is it offensive to call ADHD a “brain disorder”? I’m Autistic (diagnosed with Asperger’s as a child) and I hate it when people refer to Autism or Asperger’s as “something wrong with you/“them”” or “something the matter with you/“them””.
    I think we need more documentaries about Autism and ADHD written and narrated and made by people with Autism or ADHD. Why are most books, articles and documentaries on Autism and ADHD always made by neorotypicals? Also, why are most articles, books and documentaries about Autism and ADHD written and made for parents who have children with Autism/ADHD? We need more articles, books and documentaries written by Autistic people, for Autistic people, or even by neurotypicals for Autistic people. We have feelings and needs and need advice, too! Most of us can read and many could use articles (etc) about Autism/ADHD and advice on socialising, getting jobs, parenting, spirituality, independence, etc…

  • I have tried unsuccessfully to get pregnant over the past couple of years and honestly… this is making me feel a little better about it.

  • Just because i have adhd i couldn’t even watch films..i mean i love movies and i always loss concentration while watching any of my favourite films

  • Thanks to everyone taking their time to read this testimony on how my son was saved from Autism.
    He was diagnosed four years ago, and he’s just 6, I have tried several treatments and medications, nothing was working out, this got me frustrated and depressed. I kept praying and finally God answered my prayers when someone from youtube introduced me to this doctor from his home country and gave me his contact details.
    I called and explained my son’s condition after which I made an order for his herbal remedy, he asked for my address and the next day I got a tracking number for a parcel sent to me through DHL and after four days I received my order.
    It was a liquid herbal medicine and a letter containing the instructions on how to use the herbs, I called him again to confirm and the next morning I started giving my son the herbs as instructed and after one week I noticed great improvement on my son and I continued until the herbs got finished and everything lasted for just one month and now my son is totally free from Autism, he can now talk clearly, behave normally and has no more seizures.

  • Wtf why are they making kids with adhd look like evil people they just need a lot of attention like a brother or a sister they need someone the same gender of them typically

  • Bruh the way your really parent a child with ADHD is get them in activities they in joy and a are good at like for this child she is obviously really good at parkour she could do Gymnastics and prob be really successful and you can’t control a child with ADHD believe me I have it and when you tried to control me when I was a child I would get mad and do the first thing that comes to my head…

  • Don’t forget step dads have to deal with this also…. telling a mom that her son is starting arguments and issues never goes well when they think their child can do no wrong… even after being diagnosed with adhd….

  • As a yoga teacher in a school I have noticed that kids with ADHD have extraordinary strength, energy & agility. They just need something physically challenging like ashtanga yoga or martial arts to direct that extra energy..instead we tell them to sit down.. If anything they are gifted.

  • i just want to say something. In schools teachers tend to be “boring”… I don’t suffer from ADHD, my husband does. I was a swim coach before I fell pregnant. I had this boy I had to coach ( because none of the other teachers wanted him) I soon noticed the “problem” and I had to make changes as a coach. I made the coaching more like a game we were playing. Its the trick of teaching ADHD that works most of the time, you have to make everything fun and make its seem like they are playing a game instead of learning. This boy developed so good with in a month he did everything perfect and all the other coaches then loved coaching him. 3 months later he won his first gold medal. Teachers should stop seeing teaching and coaching as a job and see it a an opportunity to (not just for ADHD children but for every child) to teach in a fun way, because it is the quickest and most affecting way in teaching any child, it also develop their communication abilities and help to get very shy children to loosen up and make more friends…. its is a problem in every system that I feel are taken up to lightly

  • No meds needed. diet is key. feeding your body the proper nutrients. getting the proper rest. avoiding artificial colors, artificial flavors, and sugar is key in the childs diet. You are what you eat.

  • All Roberts parents do is make excuses for him or blame all of his behaviors on other kids. Noticed when they were talking about him interacting with other kids it was always ‘robert only acts up if another kid have pushed him to it’ they never once said Robert instigated anything. Obviously other kids will instigate situations sometimes but im pretty sure Robert instigates the majority of incidents with his adhd being so bad, being the parents they need to acknowledge that. The kids are prob that sick of him pushing them they fight back

  • You know what I noticed. A spinless mother.
    “Oh don’t do that” in a soft voice.

    I’m telling you now. My Mexican Mother In-law would have that kid sitting down and reading a book in about 5 minutes.

    Jesus how on Earth did we live before pumping kids full of amphetamines!

  • This kid would rive me crazy! Isn’t there something they can do with her?? I hate to say it, but the mother should keep her drugged on tranquilizers or Tylenol PM.

  • Hi my kid is digonoised with adhd.he is five year and mostly he doesnot listen to me. And he takes too much time for doing his homework

  • 9:26 I do that. When I was at work I would always start something and then start on something or I have to do a job properly from start to finish like at Tafe almost of the assignments are write 2 sentences and I find that very hard. The question isn’t hard and I know the answer but to put the answer not properly does my head in.
    I believe my daughter has adhd but she was diagnosed with emerging borderline personality disorder, attachment disorder, anxiety, ptsd and intellectual disability. I believe she has the anxiety, adhd and intellectual disability but what do I know? I am only raising her..
    I’m sorry but living and raising a child with mental health Illnesses and a disability I have learnt that it should let the child decide if he/she wants to try therapy, medication because it is their life and you don’t have to not have a say as a parent you can say Jim(made up name) I think you should do this because of this reason and not do this for that reason it might be you need to go for a walk or sit down what ever it is when they connecting with you. Also holding your child is just making her more mad.

  • All the people that think children with ADHD are just those who have been let loose by their parentsthere are parents that have more than one child and you can see the contrast between the non-ADHD and ADHD ones receiving similar or the same kind of level of attendance from the parents. There is a degree of freedom that needs to be given to the child. If they are too troublesome even to let them unattended for 5 minutes, then something is wrong.
    I just can’t get how some idiots with no clinical training or experience with an ADHD child can make statements about matters like this.

  • Truly, if you want to stay that ignorant and make it all so complicated, go right ahead, but at least admit to the fact that you aren’t willing to make the most minor compromises to change the entire picture. UGH. Back off the two most toxic allergens to the intestines and the brain. Blood type O especially will respond extremely well. OR you can keep drugging them and play victim. WAKE UP!

  • im 12 and i have adhd mine isnt as bad as the kids in the video but i dont need meds. but an accurate description of adhd in my opinion on how i experience it is trying to read something while there are really loud noises and people running around you

  • ADHD Medications Are ADHD drugs right for you or your child? Are ADHD drugs right for you or your child? What you need to know, including common side effects and tips for taking them responsibly.

  • Here’s a novel idea accept your ADHD child as they are and stop trying to change them, My daughter was diagnosed with severe ADHD and undiagnosed autistic and did all the things the first girl in the video did. Now at 22 she’s a manager despite leaving school with no qualifications. That’s without ever taking any medication and zero help for autism or ADHD. I accept her as she is, I’m autistic and ADHD too.

  • The background music that plays whenever Chrissy was on screen was clearly a sick joke on us viewers with ADHD. It was so distracting that I couldn’t pay attention to what she was saying because there were overlapping voices.

  • There is much better tablets on the market than ritteling. Conserta is much saver. It is more expensive but a lot less harmful. As they get older with good guidance the kids grow out of it a bit.

  • ADHD. MY SIX YEAR long relationship ended due to his denial.when he smoked a tiny bit of marijuana. He was. Very at eAse and balanced.Even on holiday in Morocco.He’s racist and OCD cleanliness etcHe was fine a little mini pipe every now and then.

  • I am an adult with add, I’m looking for ways to tackle my ADD without medication, I’ve got lupus and neuropathy, I walk 3 times a day, get plenty of sleep and eat mostly right. I’ve tried vivanse and adderall, Rhyddlan sp? But they make me feel as if I’ve done a bump.
    But I need something, my house is a mess with areas that are kind of clean because I move from room to room remembering something else that needs done. I’ve never finished a chapter book (would love to) and my kids have ½ started DIY projects throughout the dining room. My husband is a hard working man and I’m able to stay home thankfully but he’s rightfully tired of coming home to a messy house. I’ve worked all day on it but you can barely tell.

  • I got ADHD… growing up, I rode my bike downstairs purposely, pushed a kid off of his scooter, threw things out of anger, my mom told me not to get my medicine off the dresser… I still went and got it and fell on my head, it had bust. I pushed a cat out the window on purpose cause I was mad at him. I got in trouble a lot as a child. My aunt had beat me with a red belt for not listening and it’s really hard for me to pay attention����

  • Iam going through it with my daughter its making me lose it she is out of control what do u do she is only 7 i am so lost this is my only child she is to disrespectful

  • Over vaccinated children suffering from everything from ADHD to autism. Tragic. 54% of our children suffer from an incurable autoimmune disease treated lifelong use of big pharma drugs.

  • This seems old and out of date, on current knowledge on ADHD, it’s focuses way too much on the hyperactivity focused ADHD, rather than inattentive or combined ADHD

  • I had a friends who his son with ADHD. I saw the hyperactive in his son behavior, all the things that the kid like to do always includes dangerous activities. But his dad use the approach of bringing him in nature, extreme games, hiking, skydiving and sort of. But when he got into the “focus” state, I always admire his ability to explain how things works, he can make others to imagine what he see. He is only 5 at that time, and he fancies trains and space. I am surprised how he remember those scientific words by that age and able to explaint it to college students. His dad involve in the extracurricular activities and a trainer for outdoor activity. I realise that, ADHD people is worth something in thier own world. And believe it or not, some of them do excel than most of us normal.

  • Why can’t the scientist invent a cure for the disorder that doesn’t involve adult doses of very harmful drugs on a young bodies. First part of documentary child has ADD put them on drugs. Disgusting.

  • Have three children with ADHD never or rarely saw this in other children when I was a child I’ve come to believe this has something to do with food allergies/nutrition The medicine only helps for a short period of time -with our food being genetically modified fast food sugar this is poison that some people are severely affected by that is my experience and opinion

  • I have ADHD and I was just like the girl in this video. I still am hyperactive but I can sit still, although I can’t sit still without fidgeting. I constantly lose things and I am very unorganized.

  • First thing I said, where the dad? Mom can’t do it on her own. You need a strict dad but not her fault. Can’t make anyone stay. I’m glad she got help.
