Exercise for Children with ADHD.

Chris_WebMD_Staff posted:
One of the hallmarks of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD ) is fidgety, restless behavior. That's why many kids with ADHD wiggle and squirm whenever they're asked to sit still for any length of time. To release that restless energy, kids with ADHD need to get plenty of exercise .
Research is finding that staying active not only lets kids with ADHD burn off steam, but it also can help with issues such as:
  • lack of focus
  • impulsivity
  • poor social skills
When used along with traditional ADHD treatments such as stimulant medicines and counseling, regular fitness can have a positive impact on a child's ADHD symptoms .
