Step 2: Identify Rewards

Each student receives two bottle caps at the beginning of the week. More can be earned by positive behavior, such as lining up quietly or helping others. ADHD children might receive rewards for raising their hand rather than shouting out answers or turning in all of their homework assignments on time all week.

At the end of the week, the caps are traded in for rewards — stickers, school supplies, books, a small toy, or a special lunch with a friend.
