Your Therapy shares research on the benefits of exercise on learning for students with ADHD: Your Therapy Source – ADHD, Exercise and Learning.

Findings of the cited research indicated students with ADHD improved their scores on academic test following 20 minutes of exercise. This is timely information as some high stake state tests (at least in Wisconsin) start in November. Check out the article and reference of the study at the above link and get your kids moving!
