behavioral management

You mention something about beharioral management.  What exactly do you do?  I am also doing some behavioral rewards/consequences but am concerned that he will get more anxious under the pressure to sit still always.

What age is your child?  Are you talking about wanting behavior modification at home or school?  At school, a chart with points (usually 1 or 0) given every 1/2 hour or every class helps ADD/ADHD kids visualize how they are doing and monitor their own behavior.  There are usually just 3-4 behaviors that teachers want to "contain".

At home, we have a "ladder" chart where our children earn points for abstaining from unwanted behavior and lose points for giving in to this behavior.  Ours goes to 50 points.  There are privilidges at each 5 point increment.  If our boys lose points, they lose privilidges, and are motivated to do extra chores.

It would be torture to be expected to stay still all day, but just changing a few behaviors at a time may not be too bad.
Let me know if this helps.
Good luck and God bless.
