defaultADHD is often misunderstood, and many times not properly treated.  Using behavior management techniques is considered to be an essential part of any successful ADHD treatment program for children. Most experts agree that combining medication treatments with extended behavior management is the most effective way to manage ADHD in children and adolescents.

There are three basic categories or levels of ADHD behavioral training for children:

  1. Parent training in effective child behavior management methods.
  2. Classroom behavior modification techniques and academic interventions.
  3. Special educational placement.

Behavior management is most often used with younger children with ADHD, but it can be used in adolescents up to 18 years old and even adults. In children and adolescents, the two basic principles are:

                Modeling behavior by encouraging good behavior with healthy praise or rewards. This works best if the reward or praise immediately follows the positive behavior.

                Negatively reinforcing bad behavior by allowing appropriate consequences to occur naturally.

                If you find yourself becoming overwhelmed by the situation, speak to a professional. It is only natural that you have needs and questions in this process, so seek help when needed.
