UWindsor psychologist Carlin Miller says preliminary findings show children with ADHD can benefit from regular meditation.

A UWindsor professor is looking to give children with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder the greater self-control through meditation.

Psychology professor Carlin Miller is hosting the Mindful Living for Kids meditation program this fall and is seeking 24 to 30 children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in grades 4 and 5 to participate.

“School changes a lot for children in grades 3 and 4 and there are more expectations of independence,” said Dr. Miller.
