Since so many studies have been conducted over the past ten years, we now have ample information about the profile and management of ADHD. Children with ADHD frequently struggle in school and with their attitude because of issues with cognitive and metacognitive skills. Due to inadequate management and interventions, it frequently happens that they are marginalized at school or the home. The development of these children’s emotional intelligence and abilities like self-awareness, self-regulation, and self-control is crucial for enhancing their life quality and their interactions with adults and peers. Medication, behavior modification, or a combination of the two are typically used to treat ADHD. The efficacy of behavioral therapies is examined in this research, in addition to the use of recent technology for treating ADHD.
