    Exclamation How to keep an ADHD child's attention?

    Children with ADHD are easily distracted and tend to get bored easily. Can you give me some tips in keeping the attention of an ADHD child?

    Use close proximity, tap their desk. Stay in contact with their parent. What have you been taught?

    Sign your child up for a sport, art class, or music. At home, organize simple activities that fill up your child’s time. These can be tasks like helping you cook, playing a board game with a sibling, or drawing a picture

    Support the child's interest, in this way you can always get his/her attention.

    You can use his favorite things/cartoons to integrate in your lessons to keep his attention. By the way what type of ADHD are your referring to?

    do you mean literally tapping their desk?

    I use "break breaks" to get them up (such as doing 10 jacks ) -- then get back to work. It allows them to get energy out and re-focus.
