Behavior Therapy

Behavior Therapy takes a practical approach to the dealing with the challenges of living with ADHD. Here are some examples of how therapists andparents can help ADHD children get more control over their behavior and their lives:

  • Encourage them to create a schedule because following the same routine every day helps children stay focused and organized. The schedule should not only include homework time and household chores,but playtime as well. Posting the schedule in several places around the home - the kitchen, child's bedroom, and playroom - makes it easier for them to keep to it.
  • Help your child organize their books and playthings. Create a convenient, easy to reach place for everything the child needs and uses during their day such as clothing, backpacks, and school supplies.

Children with ADHD need set guidelines that they can easily follow. Also when your child follows rules, they should be rewarded.
