We have used Brain Gym exercises at home (we homeschool) All of us in my family (children and adults) are ADD/HD. We used the brain gym primarily to get both halves of the brain working together. It doesn’t help with the fidgiting, but it does help with the focus. My children also exercise with dance and gymnastics which helps them tremendously. We also found a book called ” Fidget to Focus ” (don’t remember the author and I can’t find the book right now, surprise surprise) and have since begun to make “quiet” fidgets that we keep with us to allow us to fidget with out distracting others. We also do a lot of sitting on exercise balls (and rolling around the house)
