Has anyone ever heard of or tried or know anything about Hyperbaric Oxygen treatment for ADHD?

He's 5 and severe. And medicated. And difficult LOL.

Hi, and welcome

I have heard of all kinds of treatments for ADHD, some work, some don't. This one sounds like it is not proven to work.

A child may HAVE ADHD, but it is not what they ARE. Never tell a child they ARE ADHD.

Its like every year some "new" gimmick comes out - and I was one of those moms that would try everything and spend a ton of money

I can't believe how many $1000's of dollars I spent but when you are desperate you tend to do anything - and my insurance didn't cover any of it

My bestfriend's daughter is diagnosed with PDD-NOS and she tried this for a month over the summer.
