WHAT ARE REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS AFTER STARTING ADHD TREATMENT?

  • We should see an improvement in behavior and cooperation.

Expectation: I’ll no longer receive disciplinary notes from the teacher about my child.

Truth: A lot of the behavioral components regarding ADHD may also be intertwined with another coexisting disorder, which may require time to work on through new techniques that have been assigned by a counselor.

  • Our child’s self-confidence will improve.

Expectation: Our child should no longer feel anxious and/or become depressed after we have started ADHD management.

Truth: Other coexisting disorders may also be present and may need medication management or behavioral therapy to treat both.
