Hi Sowmya
ADHD is Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder. You can see improvement in your child my brain stimulant medications and behavior modification modalities, for this you have to be in regular follow up with Pediatric psychiatrist, psychologist and social worker. The activity of your child should be diverted into some constructive works like some exercises. Its a multidisciplinary approach and should be coordinated with all team members.
