Treatment options: Depending on the severity of ADHD with or without learning problems, there are many successful approaches. School can provide some accommodations, and sometimes this works well. There are many medication options, including psychostimulants such as methylphenidate and others, as well as Noradrenergic products like Atomoxetine. A professional evaluation is essential for proper treatment plan.
