Helping preschoolers who have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder may require more behavior therapies and less medication, concludes a study published in School Psychology Review, a biannual journal from the Bethesda, Md.-based National Association of School Psychologists.

The study, conducted by multiple researchers from different universities, examined a sample of 135 preschoolers over five years and used behavior-only therapy between parents and children to help the youngsters learn how to interact better with their classmates and teachers.

The study says about 1 percent to 4 percent of preschoolers are diagnosed with ADHD. But it cautions against diagnosing children with ADHD when they are in preschool.
