Behavioral Interventions Can Help In Many Situations

Aug 21, 2008
Parents and pre-schoolers with ADHD saw considerable improvement after behavioral interventions, a new intervention study shows. Parents received educational classes that focused on parenting skills, understanding child behavior and child safety.

Individualized, at-home interventions and group therapy techniques were used over a one-year period, which led to a decrease in behavioral problems and an increase in social skills. Many children and parents need a little extra help getting acclimated to the traditional school system. After all, no one is born the perfect parent!

Often, children who need a behavioral intervention suffer from ADHD, autism, dyslexia or another pervasive developmental disorder. An early intervention program is the key to helping the child overcome natural difficulties and find studying techniques that work. The public school system generally only focuses on one particular learning mode, which leaves many students feeling "stupid" or frustrated.

By teaching the student more about their learning needs and focusing on self-empowerment, as well as skill development, the students will begin to learn their way at their own pace and will develop a renewed interest in school. A behavioral intervention can do more than just prevent anger or hyperactive outbursts in school. It can pave the way for your child's future and instill a sense of pride and accomplishment.

In some cases, behavioral interventions are needed because the child is experiencing trouble at home. Perhaps you, as a parent, are feeling guilty when you see how your own actions are internalized by your children. Some parents are afraid to seek intervention programs because they fear their children will be taken away or that they'll be viewed as bad parents and forced to confront their own demons.

Yet the family intervention is one of the most effective programs out there, designed to enable better family communication and knock down years of resentment or negativity. Most support services are not connected with law enforcement and are based around counseling. Unless there is immediate physical danger involved, it's not usually in the child's best interest to separate them from the family unit, so you should never be afraid to seek an intervention for your family.

Evidence suggests that pre-natal behavioral interventions can be extremely helpful for pregnant women who smoke, drink, suffer from depression, or are victims of intimate partner violence. These risks can cause developmental disorders with your baby and may also lead to post-partum depression for the mothers. These intervention programs are ultimately very successful, with 90% of participants reporting a significant difference in their situation, according to one 2008 intervention study.
