Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is difficult to diagnose as it is covered by parental justification about children’s attitudes/character or with behaviors typical of the age of development. Conventional treatment uses targeted behavioral psychotherapy, which may also include pharmaco- logical interventions, which however can lead to adverse effects. In this way, physical activity associated with treatment is recently establishing as an additional and effective approach with no harmful contraindications for the person.
