Skating instead of Ritalin

This week we started with the control group for our study "Effects of a skateboard workshop on the psychomotoric skills and psychological well-being of children with ADHD" in cooperation with Prof. Dr. Heiko Wagner from the Institute of Sports Science at the WWU and Dr. Patricia Ohrmann from the Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy at the University Hospital of Münster. With this study we investigate whether motor skills and self-regulation of children and adolescents with ADHD can be positively influenced by a four-month guided skateboard workshop. Now the control group has started and we would like to see whether skateboarding can also have positive changes in children without ADHD symptoms.

We are looking forward to the next 16 weeks!
