The three conditions that comprise the disruptive behavioral disorders are: 1. Oppositional defiant disorder (ODD). Whereas ADHD children cannot comply because of inattention or impulsivity, ODD children are unwilling to conform (even with an intriguing task). They may be deliberately annoying, negative, belligerent, angry, or spiteful. Although many children with ADHD and mood disorders meet diagnostic criteria for ODD, I personally rarely diagnose the latter condition, instead finding most of the negative behaviors as inadvertently stemming from an overwhelmed nervous system.

Barkley (2000) reminds us to set a reward for the correct behavior you would rather replace it with. For example, suppose that you are trying to correct a child’s nasty behavior towards his sister. Your goal is that he should be nice to her. So, rather than punishing a child for yelling at his sister, reward him for each kind comment. Rewards should be immediate, frequent, powerful, clearly defined, preferably relevant, and consistent. Remember, only positive rewards will change behavior and improve attitude.
