Hyperkinesis: The Need for Both a Physiological and Behavioural Assessment.
Williams, Noel H.
The paper addresses the assessment and management of hyperkinesis in children. Recent research is reported to show that hyperkinetic children differ in psychological functioning, which might account for varying reactions to stimulant medication. An evaluation procedure which identifies the subgroups of hyperkinetic children using behavioral and physiological measures is discussed. (Author/SBH)
