What is the best treatment of ADHD ?

Hi, Is there any treatment available for ADHD? My 6.5 year old child (male) is suffeing from ADHD. He is having some behaviroual issues and he can not focus on a task for more then 2-3 minutes. Most of the time he seeks for our attention, and try to distract ourselves if we don t listen him. We are really helpless as this is affecting our normal life. We are very worried about his own future too. Right now he is taking a couple of OT therepy sessions, and also taking help from special educators for his education needs. Any help ? Thanks Vipin
