Behavior management pertains to evidence-based strategies that are used to modify a student’s behaviors in the classroom setting. Students with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) often demonstrate behaviors that are inappropriate in classroom settings and disruptive to learning environments. This can be due to a student’s persistent patterns of impulsivity, hyperactivity, inattention, and an inadequate display of age-appropriate social skills. Teachers can incorporate a variety of evidence-based behavioral management strategies to support the skills that are needed for students to succeed socially and academically in the classroom setting. Behavior management strategies are important to implement as early as preschool and kindergarten. This is to ensure that a student’s age-inappropriate behaviors are recognized, assessed, and carefully modified when needed. Finally, positive reinforcement strategies must occur intermittently and across multiple learning environments for the overall behavioral and academic success of students with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.
