"The 
University of Alabama at Birmingham Summer Treatment Program (STP) for children with behavior disorders such as ADHD is one of the few national programs dedicated to the treatment of ADHD. 

This program is reported by parents to be one of the best in the country.

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) issued new guidelines for treatment of ADHD that expand the ages of treatment and define the treatment regime by age.

The new age range for treatment is ages 4 to 18 years.

The report, "ADHD: Clinical Practice Guidelines for the Diagnosis, Evaluation and Treatment of Children and Adolescents with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder," was presented on October 16, 2011, at the AAP National Conference & Exhibition in Boston by the lead researcher for the study Mark Wolraich, MD, FAAP.

Interventional therapy is recommended for children aged 4 to 5. Drug therapy is a last resort for young children. A combination of drug therapy and behavioral therapy are recommended for school age children and adolescents. The choice of therapy is symptom based."
