Hospital Tested cognitive Behavior Therapy
The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto tested cognitive behavior therapy on 25, 7-13 year-olds. All received therapy, and half received additional instruction in problem solving. The parents of the boys receiving problem solving instruction reported the biggest improvement in their children’s behavior. In addition, psychological tests showed an improvement in the boy’s self-esteem. One conclusion was drug treatment should be a last resort for hyperactive children. (Newspaper report, June 24, 1992).

Judson School Makes Many Changes
Judson School, in Scottsdale, Arizona, has made many changes this last year to make their academic curriculum more experiential. Analysis of student performance is positive. A key component has been for each student to be tested at the beginning of the year for learning style, and then schedule the students where they can use their learning style to best advantage. A few Special Purpose Schools are starting to consider sending some graduates to Judson to finish High School when the student needs more support than home or a more traditional school can offer.
