Hyperactivity in Preschool Children as Non-Compliance: A New Conceptual Basis for Treatment.
Drash, Philip W.; And Others
A multifaceted behavioral treatment program designed to modify noncompliance in five hyperactive preschoolers and to train their parents in techniques of maintaining compliant behavior was implemented. Results indicated that hyperactivity and noncompliance were reduced to normal limits. Parents' use of behavior modification techniques were equivalent to that of trained child behavior specialists. Data supported the hypothesis that hyperactivity in the preschool child and noncompliance are operationally equivalent terms, and that a treatment program based upon modification of compliance behavior is an effective means for remediating hyperactivity in preschool children.
