cognitive behavioral therapy adhd

Cognitive behavioral therapy adhd when combined uses the former as the therapy and the latter as the disorder.  That is, because cognitive behavioral therapy has been proven to help other human suffering, it can also prove effective for ADHD, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.   

"ADHD is a common behavioral disorder that affects an estimated 8% to 10% of school-age children. Boys are about three times more likely than girls to be diagnosed with it, though it's not yet understood why. Children with ADHD act without thinking, are hyperactive, and have trouble focusing. They may understand what's expected of them but have trouble following through because they can't sit still, pay attention, or attend to details." - http://www.kidshealth.org/parent/emotions/behavior/adhd.html

With the symptoms mentioned above, the methods used by cognitive behavioral therapy can help a child be still, focus, and pay attention to details, the necessary skills for the classroom.  This means medication alone should not be the only solution for ADHD.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy allows for methods to be customized to meet each individual's needs, and for anyone with ADHD, one skill may be targeted at a time with simple, step-by-steps until that skill is learned.
