A coworker of mine has an 8 year old diagnosed with "sensory 
integration" - which is something akin to ADD ( but i don't really 
know enough about it). Her teachers had suggested she play him some 
music to help him feel calmer, etc. He did not like any of the stuff 
they suggested. I gave her "Akufen- My Way", "Jan Jelinek-Loop 
Finding Jazz Records" and "Pole-2". He loved them and it reduced his 
outbursts significantly. My theory was just that these recordings 
have a lot of little details which just kept his brain occupied, 
instead of letting it wander.

Anyway just some anecdotal evidence of the efficacy of such an approach.
