LOPEZ SANCHEZ, Laura; LOPEZ SANCHEZ, Guillermo Felipe  and  DIAZ SUAREZ, Arturo. Effects of a physical activity program on the body image of schoolchildren with ADHD. CPD [online]. 2015, vol.15, n.2, pp.135-142. ISSN 1989-5879.

This paper focuses on studying the effects of a physical activity program on body image of a group of schoolchildren with ADHD. This investigation involved 12 students (12 boys), aged between 7 and 12 years. The body image was measured by Stunkard's silhouettes. The procedure was as follows: pre-test, intervention and post-test. The intervention consisted of 2 days per week of physical activity, 60 minutes per day, during 12 weeks. There have been significant improvements in body image (p=0,039). The program used is effective to improve the body image of children with ADHD.

Keywords : Body Image; Physical Activity; Physical Education; Elementary Education; ADHD.
