    Cognitive Therapy for ADHD

    The ability to tame symptoms via behavioral therapy and training suggests that many ADHD children may not need drugs. But both behavioral therapy and working memory training require diligence and patience from parents, teachers and therapists. That's not easy for a time-crunched society and far more laborious than popping a pill.
    This was a really good article and I wonder if as a parent with TS+ of kids with TS+, I have the executive functioning and patience to be able to follow through on this type of training on a consistent basis? If any of you with experiences in this area can tell me how you were successful in the follow through, I would love to hear about how you managed things.
