How to Increase Success at Home for Children with ADHD

Being the parent of a child with ADHD is often very hard at times. It is important to remember that with help, most children with ADHD will succeed. As a parent, you will often need to be the manager of the team that helps your child succeed.

How to start

Behavioral family therapy/behavior management

Learning new skills and strategies to manage misbehavior will help you to focus on certain behaviors and provide consistent directions. Behavior management will also help your child learn from his mistakes. Professionals who specialize in behavior management/behavioral family therapy include psychologists and licensed social workers.

Support groups

Joining a support group will help provide additional information as well as support to families. Visit the Children and Adult with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (CHADD) website to find support group chapters in your area.
