I have adhd, and I find that when I have to sit down and do some work, I need to reward myself regularly, and set myself small goals. For example, I may decide that for every 100 words I write, I can get up and go for a walk around my garden. This helps clear my mind, and allows me to get my work done.
I also get more work done when I am in an environment with few distractions, e.g. a library or empty classroom.
I'm not sure if your question is about adults with adhd, or children. I'm speaking from an adult's perspective. However, I think the same techniques I've described may also be useful to use with children with adhd.
if you're asking for a child, i wrote a hub about it--http://hubpages.com/hub/ADD-ADHD-and-Homework
for myself, i find that frequent breaks are necessary. many of the same techniques work for children and adults as well. we're all really quite the same
#1. Set a routine time to study, daily.
#2. Find a quiet place without distractions.
