Attention deficit hyperactive disorder is a serious problem with those who have it. Children with ADHD are easily distracted by almost anything. They find it difficult to concentrate on school work if they are not really interested in it.

You might want to do some basic reading on the disorder. There might be some research that indicates what kind of environment best suits a learning center for ADHD kids.

It would seem that since those with the disorder are easily distracted, the facility should provide a minimum of design elements that would become distractions in and of themselves.

Clearly more research is needed on what kind of facility would best help ADHD kids. Talk to your local teachers and see if they know a specialist who works with ADHD kids. Maybe they can provide some insight.
