http://adhdinadults.com/ Adult ADHD treatment requires a multi-modal approach that blends medication with other components such as patient education, self-education and coaching. Other coping treatment options for ADHD include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), social skills groups and vocational assessment / counseling that can improve patient functioning and the overall quality of life.
Anthony Rostain MD/MA, is the Medical Director for the Penn Medicine Adult ADHD Program and recommends that patients utilize these additional treatment options to compliment ADHD medication.
Patient education occurs through discussions between adults with ADHD and physicians. The conversation should include ADHD treatment options and the impact of ADHD in the daily life of those with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Self-education is recommended to help the patient cope better with ADHD as it familiarizes people with online resources that are available. Finally, coaching can complement treatment options by offering structure and organization techniques to assist those suffering with ADHD in their daily life.
Robert Tudisco is the Executive Director of ADHD Coaching and explains how networks of ADHD coaches exist to provide support to adults and students who have been diagnosed with ADHD. The organization created to provide this support for ADHD students and adults is called The Edge Foundation. The Edge Foundation is a resource in public schools across the country and recognizes the benefits of ADHD diagnosis. Children and Adults with ADHD (CHADD) can also help provide support.
These alternative approaches are covered in educational seminars, click the link above for more information.
