tips for dealing with adhd and add

tip for those with adhd children in their classes as advised by the mental health foundationIf you are a teacher there are many ways in which you can organise your classroom, lessons and behaviour in order to help children with ADHD. For example, arrange the classroom to minimise distractions, for example seating pupils with ADHD away from windows, avoiding the use of tables with groups of pupils. Include a variety of activities during each lesson, alternating physical and sitting-down activities. Set short, achievable targets and give immediate rewards when the child completes the task.

and this from an american site home room teachrs -
Dealing with ADHD in the classroom can be difficult, but you need to know when to take action and when not to. For instance, if you have a child with ADHD who wanders around the classroom, first decide whether or not she is disrupting the class by doing so. If she is not, then let her wander. All that matters in the end is that she is able to get her work done.

Here are some more tips for dealing with ADHD in the classroom:

Try not to overstimulate the child or children with ADHD in your class
When possible, use visual, as well as verbal instructions
Avoid long tests if possible and instead give frequent, short quizzes
Give the kids more than one choice in activites
When dealing with ADHD in the classroom, it is a good idea to keep the classroom structures (have activities at the same time every day, etc.). Children with ADHD often need structure.
Give children with ADHD extra time to complete activities
Keep all rules simple and to the point. Dealing with ADHD in the classroom will be much easier if you do not have to keep punishing your students for extravagant rules that they may have broken. Besides, it is much easier for children with ADHD to follow and focus on simple rules.
Vary your activities often. Children with ADHD have short attention spans…
Give children activities that are more hands-on or involve more visual work
Use different shapes and colors to help your children with ADHD organize their school work
Be aware of any medication that your children with ADHD may be on… there could be possible side effects to that medication
Keep the format of your worksheets simple
Keep your lessons short
