Hyper-Activity in Children Having Behavior Disorders
Childers, A. T.
Journal of Attention Disorders, v13 n3 p224-228 2009
Frequently, child guidance clinics, pediatricians, teachers, and others have brought to their attention children who manifest hyper-activity as an outstanding feature and of such a degree as to be regarded outside the bounds of normal conduct. The literature on this subject, except for hyper-activity in infancy, has mostly to do with the postencephalitic conditions, choreas, and other organic neurological syndromes of a chronic nature. This is particularly true of the literature during the period 1925 and 1928. From experience, only a minor proportion of cases seemed directly related to definite neurological disease. In order to learn what they could about hyper-activity in children, the author has followed up on certain approaches to the subject that have been suggested.

It was presented as a paper at the 1935 annual meeting of the American Academy of Orthopsychiatry. This excerpt is reproduced as it appeared in 1935.]
