Studied the effectiveness of the Dohsa method in establishing (1) a positive attitude toward learning, (2) reciprocal communication with a teacher or other adult, and (3) cognitive bases that promote learning activities. Human Ss: Two male Japanese school-age children (aged 8 yrs) (mental retardation and autistic tendencies). Ss participated in individual 40-min Dohsa training sessions conducted 3 times/wk for 1 yr. Dohsa tasks (relaxing body tension and keeping an upright posture while sitting with legs crossed and kneeling) and learning activities (taking turns in ball play, jumping in circles, and imitating motor movements) were practiced.
