Imagine for a moment that you are hyperactive. You seem to be driven by some kind of hidden engine to keep moving. For you to live is to move and to move is to live! What would be the one of the worst forms of torture that someone could devise for you? Simple really: Make you sit still for hours on end! Â You can almost imagine the agony. Every fibre in your body is twitching as you resist the overwhelming temptation to move even one inch for you know that there will be consequences if you do! Now turn your mind to thousands of classrooms up and down North America. What I have not described is not merely a hypothetical situation but the daily reality for thousands of kids with ADD/ADHD. In fact, the inability to sit still is such an important part of the condition that it defines a specific form of it. The â€˜Hâ€™ in ADHD obviously stands for hyperactivity. Rest assured, for those of your students where the â€˜Hâ€™ is applicable, sitting still is one of the most difficult things imaginable.
