    ADHD "is" a scam

    ADD & ADHD is a scam developed from the Gov.
    Schools get funds for each child diagnosed, who push (force) parents into treatment. Parents get blessed with government incentives in the form of ssi.....

    Yes. And when they turn 18 they are no longer eligable for govt. money and are cut loose cold turkey. That is what we saw at the shooting in New Hampshire. A young person that had been "diagnosed" with a learning disability only to be cut off when they left school "and the money incentives" and could not cope with life because we never taught them to be independant thinkers. Death or prison. Either way they once again become someone elses problem.

    Btw: I didn't just happen upon this by some chance. My younger brother was targeted and diagnosed. At 15 I was shouting scam, and our story went pretty similar to the above!

    I am going to chime in here for two reasons, the most important one, I have a case of insomnia tonight and can't get to sleep....

    The second reason is, my son (now 18) was diagnosed with Aspergers syndrome about three years ago. Aspergers is a spectrum disorder in the autism family.

    That being said, we have had major behavioral issues with him since he was three years old. Public school wanted him to enter special education classes because of his behavior causing disturbances in the classroom. We have hired private counselors, psychologists, behaviorists, name something..., Spent thousands of dollars of which I did not have and insurance did not help with.

    He was said to have ADD, ADHD, OCD, all over the board. Name an acronym and he has been called it.

    After testing his IQ, the schools would not do anything to help (his score was in the high 140's). I feel sorry for people with kids experiencing major neurological and behavioral problems. It can wear on you like a cancer.

    The help is not there and putting a generic label on something only makes it worse.

    My son is doing awesome now and has been on medications to take out the peaks and valleys and he has recently been awarded the ROP (regional occupational program) student of the year for our entire county.

    It is not surprising to me that the government would go down this road. They could screw up a winning lottery ticket.

    GT
    If a day goes by and you have learned nothing, I hope you got a lot of sleep.

    Don't even get me started on this. I was one of those ADHD kids growing up. Someone should give the government "speed" and see how we'll they perform. I hate how those meds are pushed on kids. If you walked into a class full of medicated kids you would think they all got brain damage. Not talking staring at the wall almost drooling F That!!! Kids will be kids.

    I remember fighting my mom on this.
    She would tell me that her hands were tied. They threatened her!

    I never was treated but I clearly had it. I handled it by asking to sit in the front of the class and away from the doors and window so I couldn't get distracted. Later I turned to a dietician who corrected a chemical imbalance that he found. Much to my skepticism, it actually worked. I feel really bad for kids that get medicated and aren't able to figure out how to deal with it on their own.

    I think that ADHD is a real condition.

    That said, I think that is is very much an over diagnosed condition.

    Frazzled mothers and fathers drag perfectly normal, rambunctious children to the doctor and ask for something to "settle them down"

    Teachers do a similar thing to maintain control in their classrooms, by pushing parents to do the above.


    I think that, sadly, government money is also a factor in this. Another reason to shrink government.

    I agree.

    My wife and I were just talking about this. She insists that there is no government assistance handed out. If a person in the district recommends a child get tested, then they are on the hook for paying for it.
