Optimum Class Size for Children with APD

I have selected several websites that have information about the move to reduce class sizes across the country. Since I dont know where this child is, I was not able to focus on the local education authority itself, but did find quite a lot of information on the topic in general. One important caveat is that while most educators acknowledge that reducing class size is helpful for all students and is especially helpful for students who are struggling with learning, simply placing a child in a smaller class will not be the only solution. But everyone seems to agree that smaller is definitely better, especially in the elementary years. Id say that a class size of 28 is going to be difficult for a boy with APD.
