Research in 2011 conducted by Dr. Sarina Grosswald and Dr. Fred Travis on students with learning disabilities in Washington, DC, USA, found that the Transcendental Meditation technique significantly improved brain functioning and decreased the symptoms of ADHD.

Now schools in the Caribbean are beginning to utilize Transcendental Meditation to help students with ADHD.

Dr. Lucia John, the director of the Transcendental Meditation program on the island of Dominica, has been teaching the technique to students in several towns around the island. The children who have learned the TM technique can focus better in school, are much better behaved, do their homework with greater ease, and have more success in their studying for tests, according to their teachers.

Parents also report that their children are noticeably more settled in their demeanor—that they are experiencing an increase of inner contentment, improved sleep, less anxiety, and better health.
