ADHD & Learning

Tips to manage ADHD: Let them wiggle (this is from my recent textbook that I edited)

WHY? For the student with ADHD – the movement has a purpose – it helps them focus and stay attentive to a task. In the student with ADHD, certain parts of the brain are less active  - like the prefrontal cortex – which is responsible for working memory and attention. The extra physical movement can increase activity and result in improved learning.
