When a child is diagnosed with ADHD, parents confront the difficult decision about which treatment(s) to pursue to best help their child succeed. While deciding on an initial treatment plan is important, equally important is establishing a plan to monitor how well that treatment is working on a sustained basis, regardless of what specific treatment(s) is being used. This is because childrenâ€™s response to ADHD treatment often changes over time and a strong initial treatment response â€“ be that medication treatment, behavior therapy, dietary treatment, etc., – provides no assurance that important treatment benefits will persist.
