The Combined Use of Hypnosis and Sensory and Motor Stimulation in Assisting Children with Developmental Learning Problems.
Jampolsky, Gerald G.
Hypnosis was combined with sensory and motor stimulation to remediate reversal problems in five children (6 1/2- 9-years-old). Under hypnosis Ss were given the suggestion that they learn their numbers through feel and then given 1 hour of structured instruction daily for 10 days. Instruction stressed conditioning, vibratory memory, touch memory, and muscle memory and resulted in a decrease in reversal errors by children in the experimental group from 10 errors to 0 errors, while errors of the control group increased from 8 errors to 10 errors. Results suggested the possible benefits of vibratory furniture and hypnosis for young children and the possibility that childhood schizophrenia may be viewed as a severe perceptual problem. (DB)
