Consistent, Managed Treatment Works Best for Children With AD/HD
These findings show highly intensive treatment works best when begun early and consistently maintained. If high quality treatment is not continued, the initial benefits may be lost several years later. Lead researcher Peter Jensen, M.D., has emphasized the need for parents and healthcare providers to work closely together for the benefit of the child affected by AD/HD. Unfortunately, recent reports in the media have misrepresented the MTA's findings and drawn unsubstantiated conclusions.
CHADD, Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, encourages each family to work with their healthcare providers for the most effective treatment for their families and children affected by AD/HD.
