I am a big fan of roleplay for my kids. If I need to teach them social skills I will do a scenario with them. For a child with ADHD, depending on the skill you are working on, you could be the person with ADHD and they could be the person without it. Say they are trying to tell you something and you keep interrupting them, which is something common in children with ADHD. When they start to get frustrated ask them if it was nice that you kept interrupting. When they say no mention to them that neither of you should do that to each other, it is rude to do. Hopefully it will help them understand that interrupting is not something they should be doing!
