Carlson, Caryn L.; Bunner, Melissa R.
School Psychology Review, v22 n2 p184-98 1993
Reviews studies on effects of psychostimulant medications on children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, focusing on classroom academic performance and standardized achievement. Reports that studies of acute effects on daily classroom performance consistently reveal substantial beneficial effects of medication, whereas studies of achievement over periods of months and years fail to yield evidence of beneficial medication effects.
