Because children with ADHD often have problems with self-regulation of emotion and have difficulty inhibiting their behavior, behavior management interventions are frequently needed. For children with difficulties in this area, behavior management will need to be an ongoing intervention. Because of the neurological difficulties these children have, a short-term behavior management program will not be sufficient. Many children with ADHD need an ongoing behavior management intervention system both at home and at school. They need constant reminders of rewards and punishments as well as the structure and increased level of supervision that a behavior management program provides.
