Preparing a Reward/Token System

Creating a Reward System: Implementing a token-based reward system is a practical way to encourage and reinforce positive behaviors in children with ADHD. Tokens serve as a visual representation of progress and achievement, motivating them to stay focused and complete homework tasks effectively.

For example, you can use physical tokens such as stickers, stars, or colorful tokens placed in a jar designated for the reward system. Each completed homework assignment or focused period earns the child a token. As they accumulate these tokens, they can exchange them for predetermined rewards.

Let’s say a child earns five tokens for completing their homework without distractions for a set duration.
Once they’ve collected ten tokens, they can redeem them for a small reward, like choosing a favorite snack or engaging in a preferred activity.

Statistics on such injuries vary, but somewhere between 30 percent and 75 percent of runners are hurt annually, a number that has led researchers to investigate a wide array of possible explanations, from modern running shoes to stretching, running frequency, weight, biomechanical misalignment, and muscle imbalance.

Additionally, using a virtual token system through a reward app on a tablet or smartphone is another
effective method. These apps allow you to digitally allocate points or stars for each completed task or focused session. Once the child reaches a specific number of points, they can exchange them for rewards established within the app, such as unlocking additional screen time or earning a virtual badge.

The runners agreed to respond to a monthly online questionnaire that detailed injuries over two years. With the results in, researchers first examined reports from the 144 who experienced a mild injury and the 105 who didn’t, finding little difference between the two large groups.
