    a little help

    It is not uncommon for children with ADHD to have good days and bad days. It is often the case. What I have found to work best for me is to allow for a certain amount of movement between tasks. I try to keep the task length short as well. You might try dividing papers into smaller amounts. For example, if you are doing a math assignment with 20 problems, fold the paper in half. Allow him to do something else when he has finished one half of the paper. If he does ok on those, grade them and call the assignment complete. If he has missed any, he does that many on the bottom half.

    Also, I'd try to keep paper/pencil tasks to a minimum on days when he is really having trouble. Do you have a computer in your class? Try using it as a reward for finishing something independently.
