Stand while working
Why should I do it:
Some students with ADHD, ADD, or other difficulties focusing and paying attention may find it beneficial to stand while working to increase their ability to focus and attend.
When should I do it:
When a student seems fidgety, gets up and sits down a lot, is hyperactive, inattentive, unfocused, sits on their knees a lot, shifts position a lot, etc.
How do I do it:
Simply provide the student an area where they can stand up and move around a little. Allow the student to use a high flat surface to do their work on, like a speaking podium.
