Yes. My son takes ADHD medication and we visit a therapist when needed. He was diagnosed 8 years ago so we don’t do consistent therapy like we did when he was young, but it was super helpful then.

In fact, the AAP recommends a combination of medication and behavior therapy for best treatment outcomes.
