ADHD is an epidemic among young Americans, millions of whom are on a regimen of prescription drugs. Meanwhile, exercise has become a less routine part of childhood than at any time in the past. Are those two trends related? Could lack of daily exercise be a factor in ADHD?

Exercise has a neurochemical effect on the brain similar to that of the popular medications, without the unwanted side effects. Stephen C. Putnam reviews in detail the scientific literature and practical experiments showing that exercise is remarkably effective in treating ADHD. He shows how to determine the right amount of exercise, and how to motivate your children to keep up their activities.

This is not an "anti-Ritalin" book. The author acknowledges that medication is sometimes helpful and cautions that care should be taken whenever changing from one treatment to another. However, he notes that a great many children have been able to reduce medication or eliminate it entirely with a regular schedule of exercise -- greatly improving classroom performance, social life, and overall well-being.

This is hopeful, helpful information for millions of children and their parents, teachers, coaches, and counselors. Reading it will change the way you think about ADHD.
