In my experience, a holistic approach to any difficulty is needed. In order for symptoms to be ameliorated and the child to go on to live a happy and fruitful life, the disabling symptoms of AD/HD need to be attacked aggressively. One thing that I am sure of is the need for all those involved with a child or adult with AD/HD to work together. The way forward for this growing number of children with such difficulties is for a multi-disciplinary team to be available to families of AD/HD children. Professionals in the health service, the education service and social services, in an ideal world, should all be joining forces in a bid to support both the child and the family. (Well I can dream!)
