Applying a Vibration Reminder to Ameliorate the Hyperactive Behavior of Students with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder in Class

AbstractThe purpose of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of using a vibration reminder with three students with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) to ameliorate their hyperactive behavior during class. The intervention of using a vibration reminder was based on the concept of providing nonverbal messages to manage students ’ behavior. The vibration reminder was placed on one of each participant’s thighs and would be triggered when he/she manifested target behaviors such as hyperactivity. The vibration would cease when the participant stopped the target behaviors, and the duration of the vibration in conjunction wi th the target behaviors was automatically recorded by the control system. A delayed multiple-baseline across behaviors of a single-subject research design was adopted in this study. The results show that the three participants’ target behaviors significantly decreased after their exposure to the v ibration reminder intervention, and they likewise exhibited positive performance during the maintenance phase. The findings demonstrate that the vibration reminder was an effective intervention to ameliorate the participants’ hyperactive behavior during class.

In conclusion, school-aged children with CP very often screened positive for ASD and/or ADHD. The prevalence of ASD and ADHD is most likely underestimated in children with CP. These screening findings require further investigations.

Abstract An important cause of acquired brain injury in children, pediatric ischemic stroke can cause sequelae across a wide range of cognitive domains, including verbal reasoning and processing speed. As a result, survivors are especially vulnerable to academic difficulties and face unique challenges compared to their peers. Despite this knowledge, pediatric stroke remains an understudied neurological condition, and its impact on school functioning poorly understood. The present clinical study addressed academic outcome in this population using a multifaceted approach. Patients were recruited for participation fr...

In this report, we describe the prevalence and disease burden of each mental disorder for the states of India, from 1990 to 2017.MethodsWe used all accessible data from multiple sources to estimate the prevalence of mental disorders, years lived with disability (YLDs), and disability-adjusted life-years (DALYs) caused by these disorders for all the states of India from 1990 to 2017, as part of the Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors Study. We assessed the heterogeneity and time trends of mental disorders across the states of India. We grouped states on the basis of their Socio-demographic Index (SDI), whi...

Childhood neurodevelopmental disorders include autism spectrum disorder (ASD), attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), communication disorders, learning disabilities, and developmental motor coordination problems, among others (1). These conditions are typically considered to originate early in development, although there have been recent, controversial challenges to this assumption for ADHD (2). Childhood neurodevelopmental disorders, regardless of whether they are defined as diagnostic categories or traits, show strong phenotypic and genetic overlaps with each other (1).

While ADHD in childhood is highly heritable and mostly driven by familial factors, during adulthood it appears to show a lower heritability, even if there is not total agreement on this yet. This disorder often co-occurs with many othe...

CONCLUSION: To our knowledge, this is the first time that the child-specific health outcomes of preterm birth, low birth weight, asthma, autism spectrum disorder, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, and IQ reduction have been systematically valued and presented in one place. This is an important addition to the body of health-related valuation literature as these outcomes have substantial economic costs that are not considered in most assessments of the benefits of air pollution and climate mitigation policies. In general, however, the available per-case estimates presented here did not incorporate the broad societal...
