This chapter reviews research on the effectiveness of the Incredible Years Parent and Child treatment programs for preschool children with an ADHD diagnosis. It outlines ways in which each program can be tailored to this population while maintaining fidelity to the treatment model. For parents of children with ADHD, tailoring involves helping them understand ADHD and how it affects children’s social, emotional, and academic development, setting developmentally appropriate goals around increasing children’s attention and reducing misbehavior, strengthening children’s emotion regulation skills, and changing the environment to support children’s need for movement, structure, predictable routines, scaffolding, and immediate feedback. The child treatment programs focus particularly on increasing children’s persistence to tasks, emotional regulation skills, awareness of others, social skills, and early cognitive problem-solving strategies. Both programs emphasize therapist collaboration and partnerships with teachers.
