The Medication of Children with Learning and Behavior Disorders.
Guetzloe, Eleanor; Cline, Ralph
Reviewed is research on the use of drug therapy with children who have learning and behavior disorders, and reported are results of an opinion survey of 10 teachers of 31 5- to 18-year-old emotionally disturbed children. Briefly described are the primary and side effects of stimulant drugs, tranquilizers and sedatives, anticonvulsants, antidepressants, and the new drug of Pemoline (Cylert). Teachers in the survey are reported as unanimous in their opinion that each of the 30 children receiving drug therapy improved their social and academic performance when receiving the drugs. The author concludes that drugs are indicated, at least temporarily, for some children with behavior disorders. (DB)
