Psychosocial interventions for children and adolescents with ADHD include: psycho-education of the patient and their parents / teachers; family-based psychosocial interventions, in particular behavioural parent training; pre-school, kindergarten, and school-based psychosocial interventions; peer-focused behavioural interventions and social skills training; cognitive therapies for the child. Other non-pharmacological interventions in children and adolescents which have at least some empirical support include neurofeedback and diet. In adults smaller studies provide some support for coaching and cognitive behavioural interventions, in both individual and group formats that support an individual’s self-management strategies.
