Exercise is more important for children with ADHD than it is for other kids, although I think it’s important for EVERYONE!

Exercise and fitness have positive side-effects of protecting your child from serious health problems (like obesity and diabetes), improving the health of skin, muscle, bone, and improving coordination, while advancing brain growth in systems that support self-regulation and help combat ADHD. Exercise, along with a healthy diet, can aide in growing parts of the brain that strengthen self-regulation and executive function, and can help counteract or improve ADHD.
