“Conventional wisdom is that kids with ADHD should be seated in the front of the classroom. However, I’ve found it’s sometimes better to seat them in the back. In the front, kids with ADHD tend to be the “stars of the show” — acting out to entertain friends. In the back, they can stand and stretch, if needed, without blocking anyone’s view.”
