Treating ADHD without Meds: A User's Guide
From fish oil to zinc, from brain training to behavior therapy, there is a wide range of options worth trying to improve ADHD symptoms.
Behavior therapy is a structured discipline strategy that aims to teach children new ways of behaving by rewarding desired behavior, such as following directions, and eliminating undesired actions, such as losing homework.
