School, Child, Sport, Attention


The threshold of attention is valid for all types of contexts that the child faces from an early age, one of these is their academic performance that often, due to the inability to concentrate, is scarce and obstacle to the relationship between problematic child and his peers and adults. No responsibility is ascribable to children because, certainly, they are suffering from a neuropsychological disorder, nor are they the parents' fault. The pathology that has found space is ADHD (attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder: attention deficit and hyperactivity). It is one of the most frequent neuropsychological disorders of the developmental age, which occurs in pediatric age, characterized by a level of inattention and by a series of secondary seconds that denote hyperactivity and impulsivity. Children with ADHD cannot control their responses to the environment: they are inattentive, hyperactive and impulsive. Such behavior compromises their social and educational life. This pathology is associated, in fact, with disorders of social adaptation, a low level of education and employment, to be considered one of the most important signs, in childhood, of bad psychosocial adaptation in adulthood. The ADHD is too often misunderstood therefore not considered supported by therapeutic interventions. So, the aim of this research in to promote an educational and therapeutic path based on the increase of the hours of sport and motor education (in the extracurricular context) with the aim of improving the attention span, reducing impulsive problems, hyperactivity and stimulating self-control.
