The present study aimed to investigating the effect of using parental behavioral training for mothers on
reducing hyperactivity symptoms and rule-breaking behaviors of their 9-11 year old children with
attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. The research design was quasi-experimental with pre-test and posttest
and control groups. To do so, 30 mothers of children with ADHD (hyperactivity-impulsivity domain type) were selected through convenience
sampling method, and then they were put into two experimental and control groups after being matched.
The research tools of the study included children behavior checklist, CSI-4 and Conners parent rating scale. The parent behavioral training was performed in nine sessions in the experimental group. Data were analyzed using analysis of covariance. The results indicated the effectiveness of experimental treatment on the reduced scores of hyperactivity/impulsivity in the children of the mothers in the experimental group compared with the children of the mothers in the control group. The results also showed the reduction of rule-breaking behaviors in children of the experimental group mothers. Generally speaking, the findings demonstrated that parental behavioral training reduced behavioral problems and symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
