When we had one for home we broke down each part of the day. Then he used smiley faces- happy, sad or straight based on his behavior. When he got so many smileys he got a reward. You could also do small rewards for each section of the day or each day and then a bigger reward at the end of the week.

I read an article about how ADHD and a reward system (where stickers, toys, etc) are not a good thing to do. Instead it suggested that you break the day up (whether it be at school or at home) and give praise after each section of time or things are accomplished. If you need to give a reward then the best thing to do is a reward where they spend quality time with a parent or get extra outside time, etc. This is what we are doing now with our son and it is working so well.
