I'm talking with behavior analyst, Holly Moses, about why looking at behavior as “bad” isn't the best parenting approach for kids with ADHD. Often, the gap between expectation and capability leads to unwanted (“bad”) behavior. Listen in to learn effective strategies to elicit appropriate behavior, and to effectively address unwanted behavior. Holly and I will adjust your mindset for behavior so you can be the parent your child needs.

  • I was diagnosed as a child Mental Retarded, I went thru hell!! I am 55 years old, I was retested and I'm not retarded, at all I have OCD and ADHD. Now what do I do??

    • Now that you have a diagnosis of ADHD and OCD, you can seek treatment. The clinician that gave you these diagnoses should be able to point you in the right direction for that.
