Positive Reinforcement for ADD/ADHD Children
There is always something positive to say to your ADD/ADHD children -- even on tough days. Acknowledge their accomplishments, large and small, encouraging them to keep up the effort. My students look forward to my ADD/ADHD coaching sessions for the pat on the back and the positive reinforcement they receive. For example, I’ll say, “Wow! You finished half of your math problems! Great progress.” Or, “Did you notice how focused you were during practice today? I know that takes a lot of effort!” Remember: Goals are reached in steps/stages, and each step deserves recognition.
