Summary/Abstract: The main problems in the majority of children with ADHD are attention deficits and disturbances in inhibiting their behavior. Many researchers and specialists emphasize the necessity of an early diagnosis and treatment of children with this genuine developmental disorder. They agree that multifaceted and multidirectional aid should be provided to facilitate development of these children taking into account their needs, capabilities and deficits in particular areas of development. One of the main advantages of the method known as Jaques-Dalcroze’s Eurhythmics – located within the pedagogic-artistic area – is its integrity, which should be understood in the context of the principles of psychology (for instance J. Piaget’stheory of cognitive development) and fields of art (dance, theatre), as well as in the context of the methodological principles and applied tasks which engage mind and body likewise, activating all the senses and stimulating each of the developmental areas. These invaluable advantages, observed in practice by teachers and therapists using this method, prompt us to stress the necessity of testing the effectiveness of the integrated musical-physical activities in correcting functional disorders in hyperactive children (including improving motor activity control, enhancing cognitive processes and improving social interaction). The following publication presents the results of the individual research concerning the effects of the integrated musical-physical activities of the Dalcroze Method on hyperactive six-year-old children.
