It’s no surprise that exercise boasts many health benefits — but it may also help ease or even treat both child and adult ADHD symptoms.
Research indicates that ADHD may be related to a dysfunction with the neurochemical dopamine. Exercise not only encourages the production of dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin in the brain, but by doing so it may have the same effect on the brain as the stimulant methylphenidate (Ritalin).
The increased dopamine produced through exercise can help improve attention and focus in people with ADHD, but that’s not all; exercise also produces endorphins, the ‘feel good’ chemical in the brain. Thus, exercise acts as a natural antidepressant. Exercise also helps children get rid of restless energy, which is a symptom of ADHD.
Sports can be a challenge for people with ADHD symptoms for several reasons. Novelty is a key factor in grabbing and holding the attention of someone with ADHD. Consider not only participating in a variety of sports to keep boredom away, but change up the time of day and the type of music listened to just to keep things interesting.
There’s no doubt exercise is hard work, but both the mental and physical benefits of exercise — especially for someone with ADHD — are well worth it.

Goals help your child understand the importance of working toward something and the positive feelings from achieving a goal. Goals are just as important for your child’s physical activity and fitness.
Kids need physical activity to build strength, coordination, and confidence — and to lay the groundwork for a healthy lifestyle. However, these days most kids don’t have as many opportunities to actively play outside and get their hearts pumping, nor would they choose to do so when given the option of TV or video games. That’s why goals are so important, to push kids to want to actively play and achieve.
Goals are usually synonymous with one thing — rewards. Offering rewards for reaching set goals can help motivate your child to follow through with the actions necessary to achieve that goal.
Setting goals with your child can give him the opportunity to explore a number of different interests. Setting a number of different types of goals for your child can help him become a well-rounded individual who is willing to put forth the effort to achieve goals in all aspects of his life.
Your child needs to see the fruits of their labor to feel accomplished. While it might be difficult, pushing forward to achieve a goal gives your child the ability to see the direct line between effort and accomplishment. As they begin to realize that they have the power to reach goals, they get a sense of self-confidence
Young children need physical activity to build strength, coordination, and confidence — and to lay the groundwork for a healthy lifestyle. They’re also gaining more control over how active they are.
At FAC we have something for children of all ages, call us at 479-587-0500.
You can help your child explore lots of different activities to find something they enjoy.
For example, children who like balancing might enjoy climbing, cycling, playgrounds, dance or gymnastics. Others who like hand-eye coordination tasks might enjoy ball games in the park, ten-pin bowling, frisbee or sports like cricket or tennis.
Plenty of variety in your child’s mix of sports, games and activities will also keep them excited about moving. And when your child tries out different activities, they pick up new skills, stay interested and challenged, and get enough physical activity in their days.
Tips for encouraging active children
Young children are rarely intensely active for long periods, but will often have bursts of activity for a few minutes or less. This is healthy, and your child will be more likely to keep doing it if you encourage it.
Keep your kids active this summer with FAC’s summer camp programs!
As kindergarten becomes more academic, many parents look to preschool to launch their child on the path to success in school. At the same time, parents may worry that a strict curriculum may interrupt important playtime and push a child to grow up too fast. Fortunately, in selecting a preschool, parents aren’t forced to choose between protecting a child’s play time and making sure they’re ready for kindergarten. A high-quality early childhood education program like FAC’s Jump Start Preschool will offer children both.
The staff at FAC understands the particular ways that young children develop and learn. And they organize space, time and activities to be in sync with children’s social, emotional, cognitive, and physical abilities. Registering your child for preschool at FAC is a great way to prepare your child for elementary school.
Preschool is an opportunity for growth.
For many children, preschool is their first experience in a structured setting with teachers and groups of children. It’s an opportunity to learn, to share, follow instructions, and to start building a foundation for learning in an elementary school environment.
Preschool promotes social and emotional development
High-quality preschool programs nurture warm relationships among children, teachers and parents. And teachers build a close personal connection with each child in their care.
Young children learn social skills and emotional self-control in “real time.” They learn through their experiences and good teachers make time for those “teachable moments” when they can help children learn to manage frustrations or anger. They have a well-honed sense of when to let children work out their own problems and when to intervene.
Children are able to make choices
Children have several choices of activities; a child who is wandering aimlessly is encouraged to choose one that interests him. Teachers are alert to a child who can’t figure out how to enter other children’s play and may offer him suggestions on ways to join the group.
Preschool environment is structured
A highly structured environment helps young children learn to make friends and play well with others. The classroom is organized to encourage social interaction, while minimizing congestion and conflicts.
If you are seeking more than a preschool, you will want to experience FACs JumpStart Preschool program. We offer children an opportunity to explore education, art, fitness and fun all together where our kids make friends while learning. Our Jump Start Preschool is licensed by the state of Arkansas, Department of Human Services.
