Many treatments have been suggested for ADHD over the years. The effectiveness of some of the most commonly considered treatments, other than psychotherapy and medication, are discussed in this chapter. These include omega-3 supplementation, other diets or supplements, cognitive rehabilitation, neurofeedback, mindfulness training, and coaching. Omega-3 supplementation for children is the only one that has proven benefits. More research is needed on the others. Ineffective and unproven treatments are also mentioned, including acupuncture, chiropractic adjustment, interactive metronome training, repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation, sensory integration training, vision therapy, massage, mirror feedback, vestibular/cerebellar exercises and homeopathy.
