To effectively support a child who is hyperactive, ensure clear communication, provide feedback, be sensitive to their emotions, and give extra assistance during transitions.
For assignments, ensure clarity, provide choices, keep them short, allow breaks, and minimize distractions. Use organizational tools and develop a customized plan by observing the student's preferences.
Maintain regular communication with parents and involve the school counselor or psychologist. Collaboration between school, parents, and healthcare providers is crucial for the child's success.

This is a phenomenal question! I think this is something that you will learn as you take classes to become an educator. Although I'm not a teacher, I have taken a few education courses and one of them focuses on students with learning disabilities such as ADHD, which is often associated with hyperactivity. Through your training, both in the classroom and hands-on, you'll learn how to work with these children.
