by Garcia, Liliana, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2014, 71; 1527932
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to design a program, identify potential funding sources, and write a grant to fund a dance/movement therapy group to reduce disruptive behaviors of children diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). This proposed project also would provide psychoeducational groups for the children's parents/caregivers.

An extensive literature review was conducted in order to examine the risk factors, symptoms, causes, and consequences for children with ADHD. In addition, innovative treatment approaches such as dance movement therapy and support groups were researched in the literature review. The identified potential funding source for the proposed program was the California Endowment Foundation. Actual submission of this grant was not required for completion of this project.
