Parenting interventions' effectiveness compared with ADHD medication in new study.

Parent-based training interventions show greater evidence of effectiveness for treating preschoolers at risk for ADHD than a prescribed medicine, according to a study sponsored by the US Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.

The Triple P – Positive Parenting Program was one of a number of parenting programs included in a revision of evidence which showed that the effectiveness of training programs for parents was greater than the use of methylphenidate for treating preschoolers with ADHD.


Triple P psychologist Francisca Puga explains more in this article which appeared in Chile’s El Mercurio newspaper. This story is in Spanish.
