Behavioral therapy aims to gain life and social skills for the individual. ADHD medication consists of psychostimulants with the aim to rebuild focus and ability to ignore distractions or nonstimulant medication in some cases to diminish hyperactivity. Medicines are short acting, intermediate or long acting.03 Apr, 2015
