    My 4th grade Kiddo has 2 desks, 1 has sides and is in the corner as an area to focus on desk work, or test. It sounds like there needs to be way more communication. Also this desk away from others is listed as an idea on many 504 plan accommodations ideas lists that you find online. If the teacher thinks he needs that space to focus then maybe she can also make sure he is comfortable with this solution and make sure he knows that he has a place in the group. I would tell the teacher that you are available and happy to brainstorm ideas, and that you would like to have a more open dialog about how to handle challenges that arise.

    You could ask for a 504 meeting. And someone from your school with a better understanding of ADHD could hopefully work with you and his teacher on a better system for him (hopefully once it is official on a 504 it could go with him to future classrooms as well), just the initial meeting might give the teacher a start at a more positive behavior system with him! GOOD LUCK!
