After the diagnosis

After receiving a diagnosis of ADHD, your health care provider will work with you to create a “treatment plan” that addresses problem areas for your child. To find the best option for your child, it helps if you work closely with others involved in your child’s life— health care providers, therapists, teachers, coaches, and other family members.1 Students illustration
