Parenting Techniques, Children, and Adolescents
Learning to cope with behavioral problems starts with the parents and the child. Therapy sessions normally involve some time with the child, but far more time is spent helping the adults develop a keen understanding of ADHD behavior and the right parenting techniques for handling the unique problems ADHD can present.
It's very important that parents learn how to help their ADHD child minimize his/her vulnerability to distraction and inattention.
Medication can certainly aid this process, but developing correct techniques for changing behavior is essential to solving the challenges that ADHD children face from day to day. Of course, parenting sessions can be useful where ADHD is not the primary concern, and we can help there as well.
