    I'm a Special Ed teacher and also have a class full of students with ADHD this year. "Chunking" their work does help. It helps keep the students calm and keeps them from getting so nervous and overwhelmed.

    Frequent breaks and/or some type of frequent movement is also a great idea. Keeping with this idea (especially if movement isn't possible, assemblies, etc.) I let the students wear one rubber band around the wrist to give them something to occupy their hands. This may sound scary, but so far every student has done a nice job with this. No one has shot any across the room! Try to keep your room as structured as possible. Most ADHD children lose it in unstructured situations.
