Nature Deficiency Disorder

Posted on November 11, 2010 at 11:25 AM
This topic is not directly related to ADHD, but I have read several articles recently which referred to the problems which arise when children are not exposed to nature.  There was one study which I read a couple of years ago that treated kids with ADHD by taking them to a park for 30 minutes every day as part of their school program.  Their teachers reported fewer ADHD symptoms in the children who participated.  The articles I have read more recently compare children with varying exposures to natural outdoor environments and find that those with the most time spent outdoors have better general health, including emotional states.  I have not seen any research about outdoor exposure in adults with ADHD.
