Parent Training for ADHD

In the article below, I will discuss parent training 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 Parent Training
  • Adding structure and environmental supports
  • Decreasing disruptive behaviors
  • Decreasing noncompliance 
  • Addressing safety concerns
  • Strengthening the parent child relationship
Where are services provided?

Parent training is provided in-person in a private clinic, or via telehealth.

Frequency of Services

Parent training sessions typically occur once weekly for 50-minutes. Realistic goals will be set and sessions will be faded and scheduled lesser over time as behaviors improve.

How to Find Parent Training Services

Parent training is 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.

Parent Training

Parent training is recommended as a way to empower parents with the knowledge of how to respond to difficult behaviors and help their child thrive. Through behavioral techniques, parents will be taught how to appropriately manage challenging behavior and promote positive behavior.
