Picking The Best Sport For Kids with ADD

  • Topic Info:Sports, both individual and group, require a great deal of concentration.

    Participation in sports for a child with ADD must be well thought out and planned.

    It's a good idea to get children involved in a sport when they are younger, because the rules are simplified and the competition is less severe. 

    Children with attentional disorders need special consideration as to the type of sport and the level of competition.

    Our Sports Medicine Physician gives expert advice on involving kids with ADD/ADHD in sports. A pedometer senses your body motion and counts your footsteps. This count is converted into distance by knowing the length of your usual stride. Wearing a pedometer and recording your daily steps and distance is a great motivating tool
