ADHD in Children: Early Intervention Strategies and Supportive Therapies

ABC Pediatrics, serving McKinney, TX, and the nearby region, offers ADHD treatment from our knowledgeable and experienced pediatricians. Here's what to expect for early treatment for ADHD.

Importance of Early Intervention

When you notice the signs of ADHD in your child early and opt for intervention, it's possible to better manage your kid's condition. By allowing the condition to go without treatment, the behaviors can continue and even worsen without knowing the most effective approach possible. 

For parents who would like to avoid drug therapy, early intervention is the most effective way to accomplish this. It's getting to the root of the problem and helping the child to learn to manage and cope, which is building the foundation for lifetime ADHD management. 

Behavioral Therapy

The purpose of behavioral therapy in children is to reduce defiant and impulsive behaviors. Children who undergo behavioral therapy for ADHD will learn to have more control over their thoughts and actions. They will have fewer tantrums and emotional outbursts. During behavioral therapy, the child will learn to problem-solve. The therapy will help them boost their self-confidence and eliminate negative thought patterns. This treatment won't cause side effects, so we encourage this approach before ever considering medications. 

Parental Guidance

We want our parents to understand techniques to better handle their children's behavior. It can make all the difference in the child's condition and progress. 

The guidance we provide will include how to get your child to better focus. We'll explain how to be encouraging. 

Rather than taking a disciplinarian approach to correct the behavior, we'll explain other methods to help with your child's behavior, such as positive reinforcement and redirection, 

Part of the information you receive will also include how to handle emotional outbursts by helping you to better understand why those "big" emotions are occurring. 

Sometimes, we'll mainly focus the treatment plan on you rather than the child, particularly in younger children. On the other hand, we can also incorporate you into your child's therapy. 

We encourage you to ask any questions you may have or express your concerns. Please let us know the treatment plan you prefer for your child, such as if you desire no medications at all costs. We want you to play a pivotal role in your child's ADHD treatment plan.
