Behavior Therapy: A Success Story

How one reader's son traded his medication for behavior therapy — and beat all expectations.

Behavior therapy helped my 12-year-old son tremendously.

With classroom modifications as well, he has been off medication since. He is doing great, despite his diagnoses of Tourette's Syndrome, ADHD, and dyslexia. The diagnostician at school says he is a success story!
