Ellis’ Awesome Quote:
Pro ADHD Medication
Ellis is not one with a wishy-washy approach to medication. He is resolute, medicate first and then add behavioral strategies as needed. Quite a different approach to many who do it the other way around.
His reasoning is sound. With ADHD affecting working memory and executive functioning, clients who are on medication will remember the skills learned after pills, not before.
