Individual (Behavior) Therapy for ADHD

In the article below, I will discuss individual therapy for children with ADHD, including why this support may be needed and how to access the service. 

It is important to note that all individuals diagnosed with ADHD are just that – individuals. This means that each child’s needs will be different. They will have different strengths and weaknesses, meaning that one size fits all service recommendations will not apply.  That being said, refer to your evaluating provider for which services are best for your child.

If you have general questions or concerns about ADHD, see ADHD in Children: What you need to know. If you are interested in learning about other treatments for ADHD, see Supports and Services for Children with ADHD.

Services & Supports

Remember, all children with ADHD are unique and have individual strengths and weaknesses. Below are general examples of services recommended for children with ADHD, but be sure to refer to your evaluating provider for specific recommendations for your child.

Common Goals for Individual Behavior Therapy
  • Adding structure and environmental supports
  • Increasing positive behaviors such as paying attention in class
  • Improving self-management skills
  • Decreasing disruptive behaviors
Where are services provided?

Individual behavior therapy is provided in-person in a private clinic, or via telehealth.

Frequency of Services

Frequency of services depends on your child’s unique needs, though behavior therapy is typically provided weekly in 50-minute sessions.

How to Find a Therapist

Individual therapy can be provided by a psychologist with a behavioral focus. To find a provider in your area, call your insurance company for in-network referrals or visit the Seedling Behavioral Psychology homepage.

Individual (Behavior) Therapy

Individual therapy focusing on behavior management is the first treatment option for children under 6 years of age. Behavior therapy in combination with medication management (see below) is recommended to address ADHD for children over 6 years of age.
