The Relative Effects of Painting and Gross-Motor Activities on the Intrinsic Locus-of-Control of Hyperactivity in Learning Disabled Elementary School Pupils.
Walker, Barbara C.
Studies in Art Education, v21 n2 p13-21 1980
In this study of four hyperactive elementary children, the effects of painting and physical activities on attention-to-task were observed. Both techniques brought improvement, the pleasure of the activities seeming to provide an intrinsic reward which the children internalized, bringing increased attention-to-task to other classroom activities.
