ADHD Medication at School

Most experts agree that children with attention deficit disorder should be on ADHD medication whenever hyperactivity, distractibility, and/or impulsivity interfere with success at school, home, and in social interactions. If your child takes medication to control his ADHD symptoms, make sure it's administered on a schedule that works best for him.

If your child requires a mid-day dose to keep ADHD symptoms at bay during afternoon classes and homework time, use this step-by-step guide to set up an in-school ADHD treatment that will ensure your child receives the best treatment possible.
