Hallam, Susan; Price, John
British Journal of Special Education, v25 n2 p88-91 Jun 1998
This study examined effects of providing "mood calming" background music in a special class for children with emotional and behavioral difficulties. Findings indicated a significant improvement in behavior and mathematics performance for all 10 of the children, with effects most noticeable for children with problems related to constant stimulus seeking and over activity. Improved cooperation and reduced aggression were also found. (Author/DB)
