Wilson, Wesley J.; Yun, Joonkoo; Kern, Ben D. – Elementary School Journal, 2022
This study explored the contribution of physical education and recess to children's physical activity (PA) behavior and examined whether they compensate for missed PA opportunities. Participants' (N = 115; age: 9.2 ± 0.6 years) PA was measured using accelerometry across multiple time periods, including data from school days and weekends. Data…

Van Camp, Carole M.; Batchelder, Sydney R.; Irwin Helvey, Casey – Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, 2022
Children should engage in 1 hr/day of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) that results in increased heart rates (HRs) (CDC, 2022). However, precise individualized HR criteria for MVPA are not provided, and it is unclear whether observed behaviors classified as MVPA are associated with elevated HRs indicative of MVPA. The current study…

Thomas, S.; Barnett, L. M.; Papadopoulos, N.; Lander, N.; McGillivray, J.; Rinehart, N. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2022
Older children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) have high levels of motor impairment, however we are unsure if similar patterns exist in young children. This study aimed to investigate motor competence in four-to-seven-year-old children with (n = 17) and without (n = 17) ASD. A series of ANOVAS indicated children with ASD performed…

Oyelere, Solomon Sunday; Berghem, Simon Malmström; Brännström, Robert; Rutberg, Stina; Laine, Teemu H.; Lindqvist, Anna-Karin – Education Sciences, 2022
Recent studies have shown that children are not adequately physically active and there is a need to increase children's physical activity. This study describes new opportunities and solutions for using existing games and gamification to increase physical activity among children in Sweden. We adopted the principles of Tic-Tac-Training to redesign,…

Harbin, Shawna G.; Davis, Carol A.; Sandall, Susan; Fettig, Angel – Early Childhood Education Journal, 2022
Physical activity (PA) is linked to multiple positive health outcomes for young children, with potential benefits in other domains as well. Engaging in higher intensity PA may produce positive gains for children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD), especially in academic engagement and on-task behavior. However, there is limited research…
