The impact of exercise in improving executive function impairments among children and adolescents with ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, and fetal alcohol spectrum disorder: a systematic review and meta-analysis

Methods: In PubMed, CENTRAL, and PsycInfo, systematic literature review was published from October 1st, 2018 to January 30th, 2019, for original peer-reviewed papers looking at the relationship between exercise interventions and changes in three domains of executive function among children and adolescents with ADHD, ASD, and FASD. For ADHD, exercise interventions were associated with modest improvements in attention/set-shifting, as well as perceived importance for working memory and reaction inhibition. Conclusion: Exercise interventions in children and adolescents with neurodevelopmental disorders were associated with modest improvements in executive function domains. Of note, studies of youth with ASD and FASD tended to have larger effect sizes compared to those of ADHD youth, although there are no new studies.
