There’s a great article on study tips for students with ADHD over on ADDitudeMag.com, found here: http://www.additudemag.com/adhd/article/10602.html. I think you’ll find it useful.

My input would be to offer frequent breaks. Short breaks to stretch, snack, close their eyes for a minute, go for a walk… whatever helps.

I have the same issue with my ADHD/ODD 12 yr old son.  6th Grade has proved very challenging for him to stay focus and study. I dread the phone call from the school to come pick him up because he is very disruptive in class as well.  We have tried having him study for 15 mins and take 5 minute breaks in between. Only thing he can’t last for even 5 mins of studying before he is out of his seat.  taking his next break.  What take him 1-2 hours of school work takes him all night to finish because of lack of focus.  I am at my wits end and stressing over next years to come if this is the beginning.  If anyone else has any more ideas please let me know. Thanks!
