What are common treatments for youths?

This review showed that treatment for youth with ADHD and ODD was variable with many different approaches being used to deal with either symptom. For youths with ADD, various different approaches were used, which were not the same for boys as for girls.

In terms of the type of treatment used there was limited or no consistent pattern that can be detected, however it appears that some children with social anxiety are treated by social or group therapy. Other areas of discussion include the issue of the presence of special needs, and whether treatments for ADHD or ODD are used in conjunction.
