Treatment of Hyperactive Two-Year-Old Children.
Drash, Philip W.
Examined with five preschool male children (1 year, 11 months to 2 years, 6 months old) was the effectiveness of a behaviorally oriented treatment program to reduce hyperactivity. Ss were enrolled in a behavior modification class which met for 2 hours per day, 3 days per week, and parents were enrolled in a parent training program. Among findings were that hyperactivity and distractibility fell from the 99th percentile to the 58th percentile, total disturbed behavior fell from the 99th percentile to the 77th percentile upon completion of the program, compliance behavior increased in all settings (home, institute, and classroom), and all parents made marked progress in their ability to use contingent positive reinforcement in control of their child's behavior.
