Medication, Predelinquency, and Delinquency: An Eight Year Study.
Blau, Harold; Loveless, Eugene
An intervention strategy is described which uses stimulants and other medication for a group of high risk, acting out, learning disabled children, and shows that such treatment can prevent delinquency. The nature of learning disabilities and brain dysfunction is discussed. The use of behavior modification and medication is described. The results of a retrospective study derived largely from the student records of one small, private, urban school are presented when treated by medication under psychiatric control, the students as a group seemed to derive greater benefit from the educational program, and there were no delinquencies on-site.
