McGimsey, James F.; Favell, Judith E.
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v18 n2 p167-79 Jun 1988
In two experiments with profoundly retarded institutionalized individuals, 10 severely aggressive, hyperactive young adults were exposed to two daily periods of jogging and strenuous physical activities. Results indicated systematic reductions in problem behavior for eight of the 10 to levels considered "not a problem" or only "an occasional problem." (Author/JW)
