Medications for ADHD have not been shown to be as effective in treating children of this age and have not been tested as often as in school age children. Medication is sometimes used, however. Other treatments, such as parent training and behavior modification programs have found to be effective strategies. Some organizations, such as the YWCA, offer parent training programs.
