ADD Children: Natures Helping Hand

Researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign concluded that children with ADD showed a dramatic decrease in symptoms when playing out in nature (green areas) and/or playing in rooms with windows. Sited in their research were several other studies that concluded green environments around schools and window views benefit all children by fostering creative play.
