Figure illustrates the key components of an innovative and non-pharmacologic treatment for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) that combines cognitive and physical exercises. Part of the figure shows a child sitting at a classroom computer and doing one of the cognitive exercises. A second part of the figure shows a group of children engaged together in a group physical exercise in the gym that requires ball skills, concentration and memory. Last part of the figure shows a brain. Arrows back and forth between these images illustrate the “cross-training” of the brain that is the basis of the treatment.
