How can I make sure behavior therapies for impulsivity in my child with ADHD carry into school?

ANSWER

Your child spends most of the day at school. Any behavior skills your child learns at the therapist's office or at home must be reinforced at school. Make your child's teachers your allies and keep in close touch with them.  Ask often how your child is behaving in school, and work with her teachers to find solutions for any problems that come up.
