Trying to locate good objects for ADHD child

Discussion in 'Special educational needs' started by emp1982, Jan 12, 2011.

  1. Hi there

    I have recently started teaching a Y3 class and there is a boy that has ADHD. He often gets up and moves around the room and this is quite difficult to manage as I only have myself and one LSA in the class who works on a one to one basis with another child,

    I have been looking on the internet for some resources to help the child. I have found the tangle which I have met before in a SEN meeting, are there any other objects that could help the child?

    Thanks in advance!

  3. I use a weighted blanket for one of my children as he loves the feeling and so it does help him to sit. One child sometimes has a toothbrush as he needs something to chew. Another has a koosh ball as he loves the feel. I have used stress balls in the past, for a more able child I strung together a set of paper clips and he had to separate them.
    Hope this gives you some ideas.
     
  4. Could be something as simple as a bit of blue tac.
     
  5. Be careful if you are going to use sensory aids. It would be best to make a quick call to your local Sensory OT specialist to get some advise. Some things can over-stimulate/be too much. Good luck
