Rapid responses are electronic comments to the editor. They enable our users to debate issues raised in articles published on bmj.com. A rapid response is first posted online. If you need the URL (web address) of an individual response, simply click on the response headline and copy the URL from the browser window. A proportion of responses will, after editing, be published online and in the print journal as letters, which are indexed in PubMed. Rapid responses are not indexed in PubMed and they are not journal articles. The BMJ reserves the right to remove responses which are being wilfully misrepresented as published articles.
Hyperactive syndrome and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) treatment, from the perspective of the psychological method of Maria Summer, developed in Rankweil/Austria, (Angewandte Logopaedie).
This method is for quick and effective treatment of disorders of speech, voice, breathing and learning, in approximately 60 sessions, without any medication.
Breathing, posture, myokinetic exercises, relaxation, are alternated in order to educate and cure the child.
Thousands of German and Austrian children were definitively treated this way, in the last 5 decades, after completing sessions during Summer camps.
