Grosswald, Sarina J.; Stixrud, William R.; Travis, Fred; Bateh, Mark A.
Current Issues in Education, v10 n2 2008
This exploratory study tested the feasibility of using the Transcendental Meditation[R] technique to reduce stress and anxiety as a means of reducing symptoms of ADHD. Students ages 11-14 were taught the technique, and practiced it twice daily in school. Common ADHD inventories and performance measures of executive function were administered at baseline and three months later. Results showed statistically significant reductions in stress, anxiety, and improvements in ADHD symptoms and executive function. (Contains 3 tables.)
