Environmental Strategies for Managing Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a fairly common disorder, typically identified in childhood. When a child is diagnosed with ADHD, regardless of which specific type, parents often wonder “What can I do to help my child?” Generally, helpful interventions fall into the following categories: 1) medical interventions; 2) environmental modifications; 3) academic skill-building; and 4) social skill development. The main focus of this article will be the environmental modifications which are often helpful to children with ADHD, however the other three types of interventions will be discussed briefly as well. This article is intended to be a resource which practitioners can share with parents whose child has been diagnosed with ADHD.
