Have you ever had trouble concentrating, found it hard to sit still, interrupted others during a conversation or acted impulsively without thinking things through? Can you recall times when you daydreamed or had difficulty focusing on the task at hand?
There is a significant amount of research demonstrating that medication alone won’t really help address so many of the core issues a child or adult with ADHD has.
