No: No research has supported the efficacy of these treatments for ADHD. The best therapy for ADHD is an appropriate medication and cognitive behavioral therapy for support. Good reliable sources of information for parents with kids with ADHD (or other issues) are the AAP parent site: and the Nemours site: Best of luck!
