But, there’s actually a robust research literature on the effectiveness of behavioral treatment that you may not be aware of. This week, we hit the big points of behavioral interventions for ADHD before diving into some recent articles to fine-tune the details. If you were hoping to find research to support your fidget spinner addiction, this episode may be for you!
