Dr. Ronald T. Brown conducted a live, video-based Literature Review of Treatment of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder: Overview of the Evidence. This paper was written in collaboration with other distinguished experts  Robert W. Amler, MD; Wendy S. Freeman, PhD; James M. Perrin, MD; Martin T. Stein, MD; Heidi M. Feldman, MD, PhD; Karen Pierce, MD; Mark L. Wolraich, MD; and the Committee on Quality Improvement, Subcommittee on Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder.

This paper is a review and synthesis of existing literature on Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder for the "purpose of developing an evidence-based clinical practice guideline for the treatment of the school-aged child with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)." "These reviews provided substantial information about different treatments for ADHD and their efficacy in improving certain characteristics or outcomes for children with ADHD."

This paper concludes "...the evidence strongly supports the use of stimulant medications for treating the core symptoms of children with ADHD and, to a lesser degree, for improving functioning. Behavior therapy alone has only limited effect on symptoms or functioning of children with ADHD, although combining behavior therapy with medication seems to improve functioning and may decrease the amount of (stimulant) medication needed."
