"the “sit still and listen” method of teaching still employed is one of the main reasons so many neurodiverse children are not able to be in regular schools to begin with, why so many children are said to have “behavioral problems” in schools in general, and why so many school children are being diagnosed with ADHD. It seems that the problem is less with the children, and more with the way schools are typically organized and run.
Regular movement has been shown to increase focus and retention in children and adults of all ages. Movement also helps all children regulate (ie, adjust their energy), and it therefore has been shown to lower rates of behavioral problems such as fighting and bullying.
Many “behavioral problems” in schools today would be eased, and diagnoses would be fewer, if more movement was incorporated into every aspect of school."
