Gadow, Kenneth D.
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v16 n5 p290-99 May 1983
Research is reviewed regarding the effects of stimulant drugs on academic performance in children who are hyperactive, learning disabled, or both hyperactive and learning disabled. Among conclusions are that, while stimulants may increase, academic test scores are not particularly great, and clincial implications for adults appear minimal. (Author/CL)
