Are behavioral therapies effective for ADHD?
Are behavioral therapies effective for ADHD? Bottom line: Cognitive training and behavioral interventions are not effective for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) (SOR: A, systematic review). Neurofeedback may be an effective intervention (SOR: C, inconsistent meta-analysis and recent RCT). The use of weighted vests may provide some improvement in ADHD symptoms (SOR: B, single RCT).
