A pilot study conducted by cognitive learning specialists suggests that Transcendental Mediation is a promising alternative treatment to help ADHD children manage their symptoms. ADHD children who practiced meditation techniques showed improvements in attention, working memory, organization, and behavior regulation.

The ADHD students practiced meditation for ten minutes twice a day. After three months of regular practice, students reported reduced ADHD symptoms including lower anxiety levels.
