What is ADHD?
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common childhood disorders. Basically, it is a neuro-developmental disorder. It is characterised by the presence of early onset of persistent, pervasive and impairing hyperactive-impulsive with or without inattentive symptoms.
While ADHD symptoms decline with age, a meta-analysis reported that a significant proportion might have residual symptoms in adulthood. Thus, it can continue from childhood to adulthood life.
The exact main causes of the ADHD conditions are not known, possible causes include genes, nutrition, brain injury & environment.
The symptoms of ADHD include difficulty in staying focused and paying attention, difficulty controlling behavior, and hyperactivity (over-activity).
Horse Therapy for ADHD
The attachment that can form between children with ADHD and horses used in equine therapy is one of the benefits of this ADHD treatment approach, and working the horses has a calming effect, helping children to manage ADHD symptoms.
