Behavioural Therapy

Behavioural therapy is an evidence-based treatment approach for ADHD that focuses on teaching practical skills and strategies to manage symptoms and improve overall functioning.

This type of therapy typically involves setting clear expectations, reinforcing positive behaviours, and implementing consistent consequences for undesired actions.

Techniques used in behavioural therapy may include token reward systems, time-outs, response cost, and modeling of appropriate behaviours.

Parents, teachers, and therapists can collaborate to implement these strategies consistently across different settings, such as home, school, and social situations.

When used in combination with other treatment modalities, such as medication and educational support, behavioural therapy can contribute to a comprehensive approach that addresses the diverse needs of individuals with ADHD.
