Abstract

The development and evaluation of psychosocial treatments for adolescents with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder has lagged behind the treatment development work conducted with children with the disorder. Two middle school-based and high school-based treatment programs have the most empirical work indicating beneficial effects. Treatment development research addressing many of the basic questions related to mediators, moderators, and sequencing of treatments is needed. Implications for future treatment development research are reviewed, including the potential benefits of combining treatments of a variety of modalities to address the large gaps in the literature.
