Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
A number of behavioral and self-awareness strategies have been found to have some effect on improving symptoms of ADHD, and potentially reducing the amount of stimulant medications required. These include basics such as establishing household and school routines, avoiding information and stimulus overload (Davenport 2000; Goddard 2000), maintaining good eye contact, as well as techniques that require more practice and specific training (e.g., meditation and some forms of biofeedback).
In addition, there is preliminary evidence that vigorous exercise may have a role in managing some features of ADHD, especially in boys. This may be related to exercise-induced increases in dopamine activity (Tantillo 2002).
