The Best ADHD Tool

The best ADHD tool (other than meds of course) has got to be good old fashioned Silly Putty. When I'm sitting in a long and boring meeting in which an administrator is reading slide after monochromatic, tiny-fonted slide of things I already know and would be much better presented as a handout (yes, I'm still bitter about Monday's teacher "work day"), I just whip out my Silly Putty. It's quiet, discrete, and keeps my hands from tapping pencils or getting me in trouble with doodling. Sounds crazy until you try it.
