Non-Medicated Interventions for Learners with ADHD
This booklet describes techniques classroom teachers can use to do three things to ameliorate behavior for children with ADHD: 1) revise the environment to set the student up for success, 2) replace the behavior, by teaching an alternative behavior that is socially acceptable, and 3) reframing the response, so the behavior is not fed by the behavior of the adult. We call this the Three R’s which are based on the Three T’s. The three T’s are 1) Trigger (what sets the behavior in motion, 2) Target (what behavior are you wanting to target for change in measurable and observable terms, and 3) impacT (what is the student trying to gain or escape by having this behavior?) So the three T’s (Trigger, Target, impacT) form the basis for the three R’s (Revise, Replace, Reframe). It’s simple and Dr. Riffel’s presentation that coincides with this book is color coded to help you remember which of the sections you are addressing with each intervention.
