ADHD Treatment

As I was studying for my dissertation I came across a recent study which was a great reminder regarding ADHD treatment. There is no treatment which eliminates ADHD. Symptoms are moderated by various treatments. ADHD treatment is not based on symptoms disappearing but rather on the individual improvement of quality of life (QOL). The question becomes how one rates quality of life. The scale used in the study breaks QOL in to eight categories which are self-measured through a questionnaire. During treatment a client and health professional can use the questionnaire to gauge QOL improvement. An important part of treatment is understanding how you are affected. One reason a multi-modal approach is important is the various realms of life quality are affected by different modes. Just like ADHD is not a singularly described experience, treatment types of ADHD are not a one size fits all.
