Can I take myself/my child off medication?

Use of medication is a medical decision and must be decided only on the advice of your healthcare provider. It is important to realise that medication does not teach skills or behaviour. Our Attention training is an educational skill-building tool that also helps improve behaviour. Once these skills are learned, the need for medication frequently diminishes. You must however discuss the matter with your healthcare provider regarding changes to medication or indeed any other medical issues.
