The main objective of this paper is to show research that proves medication is the best way to control Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) symptoms. There are other strategies but when it comes to success in the classroom, medication is best. When considering students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), this is especially true.
Although very common, ADHD is misunderstood. For this reason, I began the paper with some facts and basic background information. This will allow the reader to have a foundation for the remainder of the paper. Also discussed is ASD and the relationship between the two. While medication is best, there is more than one method to treat ADHD. I introduce the reader to other options and explain the pros and cons of those options. This will show the reader that I researched more than one option.
