What is Behavior Therapy and How Can it Help Children with ADHD?

Behavior therapy focuses on changing behavior by changing the environment. Behavior therapy for children teaches adults (parents, or teachers) how to respond when children misbehave. It also focuses on increasing children's good behavior. One part of behavior therapy is setting up consequences for children's behavior. Another focus is learning how to make it easier for your child to behave well (for example, following a routine).
