Parental Training May Benefit ADHD Kids Under 6: Report

TUESDAY, Oct. 25 (HealthDay News) -- Training parents in how to manage children's problem behaviors can improve the conduct of preschool children with symptoms of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), according to a new report.

The researchers also found insufficient evidence to support the use of ADHD medications in children younger than 6 years of age, but two drugs are generally safe and effective for older children.

The team also examined the use of medications in kids with ADHD. For children age 6 and older, the drugs Ritalin (methylphenidate) and Strattera (atomoxetine) are effective in controlling ADHD symptoms without significant risk of harm for up to 2 years, but there is little research on their effectiveness and possible risks when used for longer than that, the report stated. Symptoms of ADHD include impulsive, inattentive or overactive behavior.

"ADHD can place many challenges on families with young and school-age children," Dr. Carolyn M. Clancy, director of the AHRQ, said in the agency news release. "This new report and these summary publications will help children, parents and their doctors work togeth
