Another good link. I am not sure that I agree that Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is appropriate for kids with ADHD as they are not likely to complete tasks, work well in a group setting, or follow-through with a long-term treatment. I do like his tip about finding an area that your child excels at to boost esteem. We are trying to do that and have found a modicum of success. The problem does arise though that your child is unlikely to be the best in any area so mitigating blows to the ego must be addressed as well. He explained the use of meds rather well, IMO.
