Summary: This paper presents the problematic aspects of adapting treatment techniques to children's needs, suggesting treatment-related decision-making guidelines for children. The paper focuses on criteria for determining who should be the treatment target (e.g. the child and/or his/her environment) and for selecting the appropriate treatment setting (e.g. home, classroom, clinic) and mode (e.g. group, individual, family, class, peer) for inducing change. Child characteristics (e.g. age, personal preferences) and treatment mode characteristics (e.g. expected outcomes) are considered, and brief case examples are presented.
