Only Works With Meds

When behavior therapy works to complement — not replace — medication.

We've found behavioral therapy to be helpful when my son is medicated. Without meds, it's practically impossible for him to stay on task, even if we give an immediate reward. With medication, however, he is extremely responsive.
