Parents of students with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) reported myriad benefits after their children learned the Transcendental Meditation Programme.
Parents, who filled out questionnaires as part of a recent study, said they saw improvements in their children's ability to focus on schoolwork, their organizational abilities, and their ability to work independently. They could get through their homework faster and more easily, they were happier, they liked school better, and they had improved quality of sleep.
This is significant, said Dr Sarina Grosswald, who directs the David Lynch Foundation's Office of ADHD, because sometimes just getting enough sleep can affect the symptoms of ADHD.
'Children today have so much stimulation that they have a lot of trouble sleeping,' she said. After learning the Transcendental Meditation Programme many students didn't need sleep aides any more.
One student reported that before the study he had been having nightmares, but after learning Transcendental Meditation he began having fewer. After about a month he wasn't having any nightmares at all, Dr Grosswald said.
His parents were happier with him because now that he was getting a good night's sleep he had the energy to do his chores.
Even that one benefit can make a difference in their performance, Dr Grosswald commented.
In the coming days, Global Good News will continue to report on comments from students.
