Abstract

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is usually first diagnosed during the elementary school years. In some cases, symptoms continue into adolescence. A teenager with ADHD has problems with paying attentions concentration and with hyperactive and impulsive behaviour. Despite good intentions, a teenager may be unable to listen well, organize work and follow directions. The most effective therapeutic approach for childhood ADHD is multi model treatment which consist of multiple elements including stimulant medication, parental training, educational programme, behavioural techniques at school and home. Teachers play a key role in many aspects of ADHD treatment planning and implementation.8 ADHD is potentially a lifelong condition with a profound effect on quality of life.
