Teaching s.o. with ADHD/ ADD

I have recently been teaching a young adult beginner who takes Ritalin. I have no other details of his clinical condition. I am writing anonymous to protect his privacy rather than my own.

His general behaviour is quite normal, very friendly, maybe slightly absent-minded sometimes. Very good body awareness actually. No problems fitting in to the group at all.

However, his attention span is very short. Especially, he loses focus in the middle of techniques and when attempting falls, sort of hides that and goes on without regaining his focus, which I find potentially dangerous, mostly to himself.

Any experience teaching people like him, anybody? Any practical suggestions?
