Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Childhood
While existing knowledge does not enable us to prevent ADHD, there is much that can be done to improve the lives of children with this disorder. These preventive interventions are directed toward modifying the environment around these children to enhance their ability to function successfully as well as to strengthen the child’s ability to cope with this disorder and avoid long-term problematic outcomes.
