Medical Support for ADHD

In the article below, I will discuss medical support (medication management) for children with ADHD, including why this support may be needed and how to access the service.

It is important to note that all individuals diagnosed with ADHD are just that – individuals. This means that each child’s needs will be different. They will have different strengths and weaknesses, meaning that one size fits all service recommendations will not apply.  That being said, refer to your evaluating provider for which services are best for your child.

If you have general questions or concerns about ADHD, see ADHD in Children: What you need to know. If you are interested in learning about other treatments for ADHD, see Supports and Services for Children with ADHD.

Services & Supports

Remember, all children with ADHD are unique and have individual strengths and weaknesses. Below are general examples of services recommended for children with ADHD, but be sure to refer to your evaluating provider for specific recommendations for your child.

How to find services

Start by talking to your child’s pediatrician. A referral to a psychiatrist for further evaluation and/or treatment may be necessary.

Medical Support

Medication management, paired with behavioral supports, can be helpful in improving ADHD in some children. As all children are unique, a medication that works for one child may not work for another, thus various medications/dosages may need to be tried before determining the right fit for the child.
