Has anyone got any students with ADHD in your classes? What strategies do you use?

I find a sound behavioural strategy in place works wonders with them as well as use of praise/rewards. Although they find it harder than the average student to concentrate, I still feel they all are capable of this and shouldn't be looked on in horror.

Like mentioned already, short bursts help and I have found small groups seem to help where they each have a big role to play in what is happening. When they are inactive they seem to go off task very easily.
