ADHD interventions for parents

Download Worksheet


What is the theory behind the worksheet?

Rather than a direct child-focused treatment approach, new research shows improvements by focusing on parents. 

Studies saw a decrease in inattention, hyperactivity, impulsivity, learning problems, executive functioning, defiance/aggression, and peer relations in children suspected or diagnosed with ADHD. Additionally, there may also be a reduction in parenting-related stress.

How will the worksheet help?

The approach works towards building a relationship between parents and children that promotes confidence and self-worth in children. Many times, disruptive behaviors are reinforced through negative family interactions. 

With this worksheet, parents will learn to pay attention to what their child needs from them in every interaction so that they can learn how to end the punitive cycle that reinforces negative behaviors.

How to use the worksheet?

Use this worksheet to analyze the dynamic between the child’s behavior and the response from the adult.

First, you can divide your child’s behaviors into cooperative and adverse behaviors. Then, you can choose a response from the Pool to see how you react in different interactions. 

Use one sheet for every situation you want to analyze. You can evaluate the responses after the dynamic happens or use this worksheet to examine different ways to respond to your child’s good or bad behavior.
