We teachers ought to know that there exists a disorder in a few students that is called Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder.
We cannot dodge it: it does exist. And the first people who should know and be aware the child has this disorder are teachers and their families, often by means of the teacher, who observes that the kid does not stop ever and has problems of focusing in the class-period and in listening to the teacher and to his classmates.
This disorder has its own treatment, through pills and some advice and techniques by a pediatrician.
Today I only want to state that in a classroom where you can have a kid or kids with this disorder you could partially solve the problem by sitting them down next to an easy and quiet student, who can monitor the activities from the textbook for example. / Photo from: Marx Brothers (A Day at the Races) www doctormacro com. the picture is just an illustration
