Posting visual reminders helps ADHD kids remember the rules. Write out classroom rules, such as “Respect Others,” and “Use an Indoor Voice,” on colorful paper, and post them somewhere easy to see. Place cards with messages like, “Raise hands before speaking,” on the child’s desk for an extra reminder. Use an abacus to track interruptions by moving a bead each time a student speaks out of turn.
