ADHD affects many areas of a child's life beyond behaviour. For a variety of reasons, children with ADHD often struggle in school.
Treating behaviour problems is not enough. To ensure healthy development and success in school, children need support that addresses these issues. To be effective, interventions need to be:
- comprehensive: it is important to address challenges at home, at school, and anywhere else the child spends time
- consistent: interventions should be similar at home and at school
- long-term: change does not happen overnight, and in most cases the child will need consistent support for several years
