ADHD/ADD Assessment & Treatment

Research shows that behavior therapy is the first line of treatment for children and teens diagnosed with ADHD. ADHD not only affects the child’s ability to sit still in school or the child’s ability to pay attention, it also has a profound impact on the relationships with other children and family members. The goal of behavior training includes reducing problematic behaviors, and strengthening positive behaviors. The child learns how to replace problematic behaviors and how to express feelings in a way that does not create problems for themselves or others. Oftentimes, this includes parent coaching in behavior modification strategies.

Triple P Positive Parenting Program

What is Triple P?

Tiple P is an evidence based parenting program. It does not tell you how to be a parent. It provides you with a toolbox of effective tools and ideas. You choose the strategies that you need for your particular situation. 

Triple P helps you raise happy, confident kids, manage misbehavior, set rules and routines, encourages positive behavior and help you feel confident you are doing the right thing.

Why is Triple P cost effective?

Self-regulation is one of the main tenets of the Triple P program. It encourages parents to set their own goals and choose the types of strategies that will work within their family homes. In this way parents become independent problem-solvers, who can confidently adapt Triple P strategies to suit the issues they confront now and in the future. Typically children and teens only meet with their therapist or psychologist on a weekly or bi-monthly basis. Triple P allows parents to have some continuity of treatment outside of session, decreasing the amount of visits and increasing the rate at which we see behavior changes.

Does the Triple P system work for minor issues?

Yes, a parent with a few minor issues can receive a brief intervention rather than participating in a more intensive intervention designed for parents whose children have significant problems. Many parents don’t feel their children need to be in therapy; however, they need some help with behaviors that are troublesome to the child or to the family.
