Has anyone tried or taken part in Parent Management Training classes or groups to help with the behavioral issues we see in children with ADHD and/or ODD
What about social skills groups for your child? I've been considering both, especially the social skills group for him. But at the same time, the rx to some extent "masks" the issues and yes it does make it easier to deal with him, but you see a different child on and off the meds. sometimes if you take meds then the issues arent as noticable, making it more difficult to treat.
ODD at least to one article I read is suppose to be partially due to the aDHD, with up to 40% of children with aDHD also having ODD, but also due to being under stress... if thats the case, my son has had it since he was preschool age... sorry but I have a hard time understanding why a 4 year old would be stressed out or depressed for the most part..
