Problems with Pollen
Reactions to pollen can impact learning and behavior
In 2005, Marvin Boris, MD, a New York-based pediatric allergist, reported findings from a small study he conducted of this pollen phenomenon. He found that behavioral and neurological symptoms significantly increased when some children with autism or ADHD were exposed to pollen. He also reported that these children with regressive behaviors didnít always have classic allergy symptoms, such as red and itchy eyes or a runny nose. Sometimes behavior and learning problems can be the only signs the child is reacting to pollen. In adults, behavioral and neurological symptoms can include spaciness, irritability and depression.
