The RAPID programme is a cognitive-behavioural, psychoeducational group programme that teaches cognitive, social and emotional skills and moral values to boys and girls (age 9-12) who have some, if not all, of the problems associated with ADHD (e.g. inattention, impulsive behaviour, emotional lability, disruptive and oppositional behaviour, poor social competence). The programme is designed to enable children to develop better self-control, improve their neurocognitive functioning, problem-solving ability and interpersonal functioning and, thereby reduce behavioural problems and increase their academic achievement. The programme also has a preventative role by targeting problem behaviours before these become habitual.

R&R2 for ADHD Youths and Adults - A Prosocial Competence Training Programme
This programme was designed by Dr. Susan J. Young & Dr. Robert R. Ross in 2005 for the many youths and adults whose antisocial behaviour or offending behaviour is associated with some or all of the characteristics of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (with or without a diagnosis). Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), is a neurodevelopmental disorder with core symptoms of inattention, impulsivity and hyperactivity that often result in significant impairment in academic and/or social functioning. The programme has been field tested with offenders in secure forensic hospitals in England.
