What can I expect from an ADHD behavioral therapy class?

ANSWER

During class, a therapist teaches you how to set and stick to rules and how to respond to ADHD behaviors. Classes usually take place once a week for 3 to 4 months. Research shows that this training not only helps nix your child's negative behavior, it'll bring the two of you closer together.
