The students are probably already telling

you what they need but you need to recognize it and modify as necessary.

Say, for example. your ADHD student stands frequently and/or paces... He may need that. He may need to be in the back or at the end of a row in a taller desk that allows standing. If the pacing bothers you or other students, teach him to limit himself. Use electric tape to make a box on the floor or a path or similar where he is allowed to move. 'you can aslso make up errands for him. Arrange a code word with a fellow teacher or secretary. "Johnnie, please carry this bundle of "pigeon" books to Mrs. XX." That person hears pigeon and accepts them nicely and he returns to your room. Next time he gets restless, have him go get it back.

Anyway, all that to say that most kids have "tells" built in. If they are within acceptabe limits, work with them. If not, try to find a "replacement behavior" that is more acceptable to you. You can Google replacement behaviors for more information.

Good luck.
