Multimodal Therapy (MMT) targets several areas, including behaviour, emotion, sensation, imagery, cognition and biology. MMT treatment for ADHD typically consists of both medication management and behavioural treatment (in this instance in an group setting). Sessions incorporate not only the child (typical age 8) but also parents and teachers. MMT tends to have a longer duration (up to 14 months) than a single intervention (4 months). Trained therapists and GPs deliver the intervention in a range of settings (e.g. school or GP surgery).
