I sent an email to Dr. John Ratey the author of SPARK asking a question about BDNF and ASD. Part of his answer was:
"BDNF is a general fertilizer, has effects everywhere-- we can say it reduces depression and anxiety, combats stress— all important in special needs kids of all sorts and of course promotes learning" (John Ratey, personal communication)
This works for me!
The more I think about the importance of exercise and the overall benefits derived from it the more I need to promote exercise for kids with special needs.
