Alternative solutions for managing behavioral disorders
from Earlychildhood News
According to the National Institute of Mental Health, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is one of the most common mental disorders in children. Given this fact, it is no surprise that parents and physicians are seeking solutions to effectively manage behavioral problems, often in the form of medication such as Ritalin or Methylin. But as many teachers and clinicians will attest, medication is not the only alternative, nor should it be the first consideration. After all, medication does not change a person; it only modifies the person's behavior. This is why many children who take medication for behavioral problems must continue to do so for years.
