ADD: an afterthought

The boy with ADD from my previous post was very fidgety and had a hard time focusing. He was playing with his mechanical pencil a lot- taking it apart and putting it together. I wonder if there’s something I could find that would keep his hands and maybe body busy while not taking too much concentration or making too much noise.

There was a teacher I had who used something like this with a girl who stuttered. She had her focus on something else with her hands (a rubber band? a paper clip?) so she could give her oral presentation. It helped her stutter a lot less.
