A new long term study on the effects of ADHD medications on student grades is out. The June study looked at medication usage and educational outcomes of nearly 4,000 students in Quebec over an average of 11 years and found that boys who took ADHD medications actually performed worse in school than those with a similar number of symptoms who didn’t. Girls taking the medicine reported more emotional problems, according to a working paper published on the website of the National Bureau of Economic Research, a nonprofit economics research firm. Read more about the study here. Instead of ADHD medications, I recommend Neurofeedback coupled with a few sessions with an ADHD Coach, study skills training, and/or a few sessions of Family Counseling.
