Why should I do it?

Some students with ADHD, ADD, or other difficulties focusing and paying attention may find it beneficial to stand while working to increase their ability to focus and attend.

When should I do it?

When a student seems fidgety, gets up and sits down a lot, is hyperactive, inattentive, unfocused, sits on their knees a lot, shifts position a lot, etc.

How do I do it?

Simply provide the student an area where they can stand up and move around a little.  Allow the student to use a high flat surface to do their work on, like a speaking podium.
