I highly recommend the book, Raising Human Beings by Ross Greene or check out his website, Livesinthebalance.org. He lays out a collaborative process for working with kids that helps get the kids’ and parents’ needs met. In this method, you tackle one discrete problem at a time, and importantly, it’s done with empathy and kids have input into solutions. With his approach, problems are caused by what he calls “lagging skills” whether or not they are related to the ADHD is not critical.
