Lerer, Robert J.; And Others
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v12 n7 p450-55 Aug-Sep 1979
Fifty hyperactive and learning disabled children (8 to 12 years old) were selected for study because of severe handwriting difficulties. The children received methylphenidate (Ritalin) or placebo under double blind conditions. Twenty-six students (52 percent) showed improvement in overall handwriting following the administration of methylphenidate for four weeks. (Author/SBH)
