Behavioural and cognitive Disorders
We are witnessing the migration of generations of children inside… and its impact on their behaviour and their cognitive development. Teachers are increasingly taking up this challenge: children are losing their ability to focus on a task, even a short one, which creates learning difficulties. ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) is the fastest-growing behavioural problem among young people! Its increase also coincided with the reduction in outdoor play and leisure spaces.
Keeping their connection with nature alive help kids to reduce their attention deficit and their stress. It helps to improve their concentration and academic performance. As it is an excellent emotional regulator, nature-connection is also highly beneficial for kids with special needs.
