Anything that helps them concentrate, engage, show interest and thrive.
Often time students with ADHD are misunderstood for being mischievous, disruptive, hostile and inappropriate.
Note that some of these actions may be symptoms of the disorder. For instance some people that suffer from ADHD may have rage outburst, lack of confidence, some may even have additional disorders such as anxiety and depression.
