Exercise and Behavioral Problems

A recent study was published in Journal of Positive Behavioral Interventions on using exercise to decrease problem behaviors in boys. Using a multiple-baseline across-participants design, three boys participated daily in eight exercise sessions lasting from 1-20 minutes during the school day. Following the exercise intervention, two of the boys reduced the challenging behaviors to zero and the third boy's challenging behavior reduced to near zero.
