Abstract

ADHD is a health issue faced by children and their guardians around the world. From the perspective of respecting the needs of children with ADHD and their guardians, visual arts can enhance the hands-on skills and enrich the spiritual needs of children with ADHD, in addition to promoting the needs of their guardians. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of visual art-based calligraphy in promoting ADHD rehabilitation in children. Through a systematic review and analysis of relevant literature, this study found that calligraphy based on visual art has the effect of improving children's attention and cognitive function, enhancing emotional regulation, and promoting cognitive development and cognitive restructuring. The results of this study provide theoretical support for clinical practice and promote research in related fields, and the study suggests that calligraphy based on visual art can be an effective way to promote rehabilitation for children with ADHD.
