Document Number: 9819Behavioral Interventions Effective for Preschoolers with ADHD - A study funded by the National Institute of Mental Health and conducted by Project Achieve at Lehigh University shows that non-medical treatments of young children (three to five years old) with ADHD symptoms can be effective. The study randomly assigned 135 children enrolled in center- or school-based early education programs to two groups. In one, parents attended education workshops on child development and parenting and in the other, parent workshops were supplemented by more individualized interventions. Children in both groups made significant, and similar, gains in behavioral, social, emotional, and pre-literacy skills. (National Institute of Mental Health, August 2007)...
