Evidence-based behavioral treatments such as parent Behavior Management Training (BMT) are found to be effective for treating ADHD and disruptive behaviors, but also burdensome and difficult to access. Stepped care treatment models tailor intervention “doses” to family-level factors and clinical acuity while increasing family engagement and treatment capacity. In this lecture, we will explore a stepped care approach to delivering BMT for ADHD and disruptive behaviors. This includes low-dose treatment for primary care, flexible sessions, and high-intensity outpatient programs. We will also discuss strategies for integrating health behavior changes into BMT models, including the improvement of sleep and screen-time limits.
