After-school programs are a blessing for kids with ADHD. A study showed that children with ADHD who participated in after-school activities had nearly 40 percent lower odds of parents reporting them having a moderate or severe case of missing school. Prior research has established that increased physical activity and less screen time among these children are both linked to less severe cases.
