Research project: The effectiveness of exercise intervention on children with ADHD


This study primarily investigates the impact of exercise intervention on children with ADHD, with a focus on assessing working memory, motor skills, and sleep quality. The goal is twofold: firstly, to validate the positive effects of exercise on children with ADHD; secondly, to develop a tailored exercise intervention plan for ADHD children that is practical for implementation in both school and home environments. This plan will be crafted based on feedback collected from parents, schools, teachers, and the ADHD children themselves

I graduated with a bachelor's degree in Physical Education from Shanxi University and pursued a master's degree in Strength and Conditioning at Loughborough University, where I successfully obtained the NSCA-CSCS certification. With two years of experience as a children's fitness coach, I am passionately dedicated to exploring the benefits of exercise for special populations. In my professional background and practical experience, I am committed to discovering and applying best practices in strength and conditioning to foster the holistic development of children.
