Sorry for the spelling but this fear of medication and overdiagnosed adhd is getting ridiculous.

ADHD and Autism are both developmental disorders. People are becoming
more aware that early intervention for children with Autism is a good
thing. I hope they'll catch a clue that early intervention is also a good
thing for ADHD. Early intervention doesn't always mean medication, eh?


Added: I don't get much in that link, and nothing about over-diagnosis.

I wouldn't worry about your spelling Sarah, did you see the spelling errors in that article? And I love how they used a survey of random people's opinions about whether ADHD is overdiagnosed and overmedicated.

"Surveys in Salem in 1640 showed that most of the town felt that the accused were really and truly witches and needed to be burned at the stake."

Well, that settles it.

Personally, I don't see why anyone would want to rush to give a 4 year old stimulants, unless the child is completely out of control and poses a danger to himself or others. These are serious medications, and should not be offered as the first line of treatment in every instance.

I only need to take one quote from the article to prove it is written by morons.

Previous guidelines, developed more than a decade ago, targeted kids between the ages of 6 and 12, but mounting evidence suggests that it's possible to diagnose and treat the disorder starting at age 4 and as late as age 18

All of you diagnosed as Adults over the age of 18 are incorrectly diagnosed!!!!! Hooray you do not have ADHD you just have something else instead!! Rejoice now.

When in doubt, please remember this observation....

Every 4 Way Stop you come upon, suddenly becomes an "instant IQ test."

In other words, it's you and 3 morons on cell phones.

Any self-serving, passive-aggressive, and narcissistic dillweed munching butt-

-snoid with capital letters after their name, can jump on an attention getting

bandwagon.

However,what they fail to grasp is that the AMA supports the data on the

disorder of ADHD as REAL,as well as the use of medication safe & effective.

In other words, they're REALLY short sided and stupid. :confused:

I don't see why parents would rush to do that either.

And I'm not seeing that with the parents on this forum. They usually try
everything else first and still hesitate to start giving their child meds. But
there's more to consider than whether the child is out of control and could
hurt himself or others ... my daughter waited until her daughter was 10 to
give meds a trial, and by then her self-esteem had already hit bottom.
She's 13 now and the meds have made a HUGE difference, but she still
stuggles with that sense of failure and not being good enough.

She had a solo in her middle school concert a few weeks ago, and sang
beautifully, but was beating herself up over her performance despite all
the compliments she got.

Good grief, practically one paragraph per page - and font so small I have to squint to read it.

Anyway, thanks for the tip.

It has been confirmed several times that the authors of those articles are media terrorists, angry criminals and moronic journalists who would write anything to get attention and make a buck. Those articles are of a surprising stupidity, Harry Potter inspired and will irreversibly lower your IQ by a unit for each paragraph you read.

We get the point. In the world there are many IQ 60, lifeless morons who post such articles. Now please, can you stop exposing us to those articles, thus, endangering our mental integrity?

Heh. I do not believe her intention is to boost her thanks values. Who cares about that? No need to get angry at someone who posts a link you don't like on a forum. For every link you think is awesome someone else may think it sucks and vice versa.

Anyone who does even a quick review of Sarah's "statistics" (i.e., postings),

can see she's anything BUT "anti" ADHD.

We all overreact at times and shoot from the hip.

That appears to be the case here, as you could not be more mistaken.

Sarah brings Positive energy to the FORUM,not negative.

This doesn't have jack**** to do with boosting a damn thing.

Drawing attention to something doesn't = an endorsement.
