Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a chronic neurobehavioral disorder characterized by over activity and impulsiveness beyond what is considered typical development.
Studies have been conducted on the effects of external stimulation, in terms of music, and its impact on task performance for children and adolescents with ADHD. The present meta-analysis (n = 5) sought to examine those effects through an effect size analysis.
The meta-analysis reveals that the music interventions have been minimally effective as an intervention to increase task performance for children and adolescents with ADHD. A critique of the past studies is provided and the need for new improved research on music interventions for ADHD is emphasized.
