It is great to see that you have taken such a proactive stance. With regards to room sharing: your daughter is getting to an age where she would probably benefit from having her own room, more so than your son. And in another year or two it wouldn't really be appropriate for the two of them to share in any case. As for the bright colored clothes and room: this is something that is different for every single person. I know some very calm children who react more strongly to certain colours than any child with ADD. I think the use of colour should be relative to the function of the room. If a child is intended to do homework in their bedroom, then a busy mural on the wall is likely to distract them. In a similar vein, although certain dark colours can be soothing, for homework this is not ideal as you may have a sleeping child rather than a focused one. There is so much information out there, we must all be selective in what we read and choose to follow.
I wish I could more definite answers, but unfortunately, even within ADD, every single person is different.
