ADHD behavior charts are used for ADHD behavior modification. With these charts, you track the behavior on a daily basis and track the changes and compare it with the previous tendencies.
This is a great tool especially when making any kind of adjustments by changing diet, adding medication, adding supplements, or using a behavioral treatment for ADHD.
For example, if you chart your child's current state of mood and activity, and then you give them a certain food or candy, and then after that, you chart outrageous behavior, then you can point back to that specific food. If you chart the exact thing again, and give the food again at a later time, then you know it was that specific food.
There is a specific method used to modify ADHD behavior with the behavior charts. From my perspective, behavior modification should come after you have the proper diet and the right natural supplements. Because this is when the child will have more control of what they do.
If a person with ADHD consumes sugar, they will go off the wall. They wont be able to control themselves. So, why try to change a behavior based on something the person has no control of?
