    Thank you for this very helpful conversation about working well with children with ADHD. At Tomorrow's Youth Organization in Nablus, Palestine, I work with children from refugee camps and impoverished neighborhoods. Many of these children are hyperactive, and the rigid classroom environment in their formal school system does little to support their learning. At our non-formal education center, we provide children from age 4-14 with creative classes that seek to build on the strengths of every child. Thanks for giving us better tools for doing so!
