Abstract

Many behavioral strategies, such as visual stimulation, have been studied with the purpose of discovering beneficial non-medicated treatment options for individuals who are diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder. It has been strongly suggested that children with this Disorder undergo an ongoing diverse treatment plan, one that includes both medication and behavioral interventions. Treating this disorder should take place in both the school setting as well as at home. Physicians, family members, teachers and administrators are encouraged to communicate with one another, review intervention options and create a treatment plan that favorably support children diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder. Additional investigations are always recommended in order to continuously discover new ways to improve how students with disabilities are treated.
