Chapter 10 addresses the significant issue of treatment of attentional impairment through both stimulant medication and psychosocial intervention. A considerable literature exists examining the positive impact of stimulants, mainly methylphehidate (MPH), and psychosocial treatments in reducing the symptoms of ADHD. With respect to pharmacologic intervention the authors discuss the influence of co-morbid disorders and dosage, and note adverse side-effects of these agents. They also discuss findings of such psychosocial approaches as parent-based, cognitive-based, and computer-based training, and discuss the findings of the Multimodal Treatment Study of Children with ADHD. Nevertheless the treatment of other neurodevelopmental disorders of attention is one that should be addressed by innovative future research.

Keywords:   pharmacology, adolescence, methylphenidate, parent-based training, cognitive-based training, classroom management, behavioral manifestations, ADHD
