For the purpose of this paper, hyperactivity will be defined as an environmentally based disorder which manifests itself by excessive sensory or motor activity. This researcher felt that the school environment plays a major role in highlighting excessive motor activity because the schools themselves are so totally motorically inhibiting. There also seems to be room for questioning when this hyperactivity seems to only be present in male children and is not thought of as a disorder in adults.
