21. July Education Reporter -- Focus: Reading, Writing, ’Rithmetic, And Ritalin
Offers a challenging view of the so called 'disease' status of add and adhd.
FOCUS: Reading, Writing, ’Rithmetic, and Ritalin Can it be a disease if no X-ray, CT scan, blood test, laboratory analysis, MRI, or any other medical test can confirm its existence? Can it be a disease if diagnosis can be made by a non-physician checking any 8 of 14 items on a behavior checklist such as inattention, impulsivity, hyperactivity, or short attention span? Yet, an estimated two million children (three times as many boys as girls) have been labeled with this disease and are taking a powerful drug to treat it. That's four times as many as in 1990. The disease is Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and the most widely used drug to treat it is methylphenidate, known as Ritalin. A powerful stimulant, it juices up the central nervous system, takes effect in 30 minutes, and peters out in three to four hours. Ritalin is classified as a Schedule II controlled substance in the same category as cocaine, methadone and methamphetamine. In 1991 the U.S. Department of Education formally recognized ADHD as a handicap under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act and Section 504 of the 1973 Rehabilitation Act. After the Department directed all state education officers to ensure that local school districts establish procedures to screen and identify ADHD children and give them special educational and psychological services, generous funding suddenly began to flow.

Awards for our site AD/HD and Medication: The Basics There has been controversy about the use of medications to treat both children and adults with Attention Deficit Disorder There have been articles debating whether Ritalin is over or under prescribed. When people ask me about this, I tell them that I can only answer for the children and adults that I have evaluated or treated. Yes, there probably are some individuals who have received medication when some other treatment might have been better. On the other hand, there are probably others who were not been diagnosed for years and could have benefited from medication. Finally, even if someone has attention deficit disorder (ADHD) and is on medication, is it the best medication, dosage and timing?

ADD and ADHD: An Overview for School Counselors. ERIC Digest. by Pledge, Deanna S. INTRODUCTION School counselors are often consultants for parents and teachers on problems that children and adolescents face. Attention deficit is one such problem. It is frequently misunderstood, presenting a challenge for parents and teachers alike. The counselor is a resource for initial identification and interventions at home and in the classroom. The counselor must have at least a working knowledge of typical symptoms and likely responses to environmental demands in order to be an effective resource on attention deficit. ETIOLOGY Attention Deficit Disorder without Hyperactivity (ADD) or with Hyperactivity (ADHD) continues to be a misunderstood diagnosis by many. Some parents and teachers still hold a perception that the label simply provides an excuse for disruptive behavior; however, studies continue to support a biochemical or organic basis to the disorder. Presentation of symptoms can be affected by family interactions, school expectations, and other demands placed on the individual child. Part of the reason that attention deficit is usually diagnosed in school age children (e.g., first to third grade) is attributable to the demands placed on the child when beginning school (American Psychiatric Association [APA], 2000). The structure at school differs from that in the home or preschool environment.

Submit The Education Haven Subscribe to The Write Site Job Newsletter ~New~ Look Who's Taking Ritalin by Katherine West Subscribe to Learning4Life Powered by The following articles are from Learning 4 Life, Katherine West's Education column on ADD, giftedness, and other educational and parenting issues: Teachers Can Move Minds
by Katherine West I believe that teachers have the ability to inspire our children even more than we do as parents do. For the simple reason that they are teaching them, creating the foundation on which they will build their academic careers and life's work. Statistics support this fact. In a popular psychological study, teachers were told that a child would struggle and have problems learning. That child did fail. Then teachers were told that this other student was very bright and that he or she had what it took to be a good student. This child succeeded. Both of the aforementioned children were of equal intelligence- an average I.Q. What does this tell us? This tells me that if a teacher expects a child to succeed then they will. My favorite teacher of all time was my English teacher in high school. She was one of the strictest teachers that I ever had. She accepted nothing less than excellence. I have found that if a teacher challenges us, we often rise to the occasion. Mrs. Brenda Neal was the person whom I can thank for my appreciation of the written word. She unveiled literary treasures, inspiring me to take pleasure in reading beautiful works of art. By exposing me to the works of Shakespeare, Dickens, and Homer, she introduced me to vibrant characters that resided in whimsical, far-off places. She brought the works to life in her classroom. No, they didn't sit in those old dusty books.

Finding solutions that offer hope and confidence These days everyone seems to be talking about Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). If you haven’t heard about it at school, from a family member or had personal experience, you’ve probably read about it or seen it on TV. In this document you will find out what you can do about it. The therapy offered at the Mozart Center, while not a cure, can go a long way to help people with ADD or ADHD. All programs are individually tailored to get the best possible results. Trying to Unravel the Controversies about ADD and ADHD A review of the scientific literature shows that ADD is a hotly debated topic. Some experts go as far as saying that the ADD syndrome lacks supportive evidence and should be clinically discarded (G. Coles, L. Fleisher and P. Breggin). Others believe that ADD is a neurological syndrome whose cause might be genetic (Hallowell and Ratey). However, they admit " the exact mechanism underlying ADD remains unknown. There is no single lesion of the brain, no single neurotransmitter system, no single gene we have identified that triggers ADD

Natural approaches to deailing with add and adhd with proven Herbal Remedies.
Is it ADD or Asperger's? - Asperger's Syndrome was first identified in 1944, but was only officially recognized as a diagnostic category in the DSM IV in 1994. As a result, many children were misdiagnosed over the years as ADD/HD, Autistic, OCD or even schizophrenic. Asperger's Syndrome may also be referred to as High Functioning Autism (HFA), Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD), Pervasive Developmental Disorder - Not Otherwise Specified (PDD - NOS), Atypical PDD or even Nonverbal Learning Disability (NLD). more info....

Many physicians now refer to ADHD and ADD interchangeably. Rather than a learning disability, ADD/ADHD is considered a specific neurological difference for which there is no accepted cure. Children suffering from ADD/ADHD may be at higher risk for developing depression, poor self-esteem, frail social relationships, and lifelong difficulties in school and in the workplace. There may also be a close relationship between general anxiety disorders and ADD/ADHD. With the proper intervention, behavioral adjustments, and treatment children and adults with attention difficulties or ADD/ADHD can learn how to focus and act calmer. Potential Signs of ADD/ADHD
  • Difficulty sitting still
  • Short attention span
    Frequent "spacing out"
  • Trouble sharing or waiting his turn
  • Quickly moving from one activity to the next
  • Trouble making and keeping friends
A pediatric psychologist and/or a specialist in educational diagnostic testing should evaluate most children who are suspected of having ADD/ADHD. In order for a child to be considered to have true ADD/ADHD, the impulsivity, poor attention, excitability, or hyperactivity must be present from before age seven and should have lasted more than six months. The symptoms also should be apparent in two or more settings, such as school, home, or social situations. Anxiety disorders are also commonly misdiagnosed as ADD.

Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder
What is attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder? Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is an illness characterized by inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. The most commonly diagnosed behavior disorder in young persons, ADHD affects an estimated three percent to five percent of school-age children. Although ADHD is usually diagnosed in childhood, it is not a disorder limited to children ADHD often persists into adolescence and adulthood and is frequently not diagnosed until later years. What are the symptoms of ADHD? There are actually three different types of ADHD, each with different symptoms: predominantly inattentive, predominantly hyperactive/impulsive, and combined. Those with the predominantly inattentive type often:
  • fail to pay close attention to details or make careless mistakes in schoolwork, work, or other activities have difficulty sustaining attention to tasks or leisure activities do not seem to listen when spoken to directly do not follow through on instructions and fail to finish schoolwork, chores, or duties in the workplace

Alternative ADD/ADHD Remedial Methods
Ilana Moyer
The recent boom in remedial methods for Attention Deficit Disorder (A.D.D.) and Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (A.D.H.D.) has come to a standstill at psycho-stimulant medication. A clean, cost-efficient, fast-acting way to "cure" children and adults of learning, concentration and impulsivity difficulties, psych-stimulant drugs such as Ritalin (methylphenidate), Adderoll and Dexedrine (dextroamphetamine) line the shelves as the "hottest" way to minister the disabilities. With a "make everything better" pill, doctors are quick to prescribe, parents are happy and for once, unruly children are behaving; ADD/ADHD troubles are over. In response to the growth in psycho-stimulant users, reconsideration of alternative remedial interventions for ADD/ADHD occurred. Many have overlooked alternative intervention research out of popularity and public acceptance of the medication. I would like to present four major alternatives to stimulant drug therapy: natural drugs and homeopathy, counseling, assistive technology school support services and EEG biofeedback. How effective are they? Knowledge by the general public of these interventions has been found to be minimal; what is known exist in the form of assumptions of ineffectiveness, safety or trust-worthy. What is the validity of this accusation or the efficiency of the treatments? Are the alternatives as effective for ADD/ADHD?

17 A.D.D. Facts
A.D.D. Foods
Attention Deficit Disorder is a collection of traits that reflect the child's inborn, neurologically based temperament. The four main qualities that define A.D.D. are selective attention, distractibility, impulsivity, and in many children, hyperactivity (A.D.H.D.). A portrait of a child with A.D.D. The tag "A.D.D." is not a judgment as to whether a child is good or bad. It is just a term to describe how he thinks or acts. While we feel it's important to look at the positive side as well as the negative aspects of A.D.D., it must be said that growing up with A.D.D. poses a lot of challenges for the child and the family. Understanding what makes your child behave in a certain way will help you meet these challenges. His report card said, "More effort needed." His parents felt he was fooling around at school and tried taking privileges away to punish him. Johnny had been examined by the family doctor and tested by a special education teacher and neither one found a problem with his attention span in these one-on-one situations. His parents felt Johnny was the brightest of their four children by far, but he was failing the third grade! "He's just so creative." they said. From nowhere he comes out with these fantastic ideas! When he gets into inventing something, his energy seems endless, but he won't stick to any of his school assignments unless we really sit on him. When he's working on something that is not his own creation, he is a real scatterbrain. He irritates his teacher because he says the first thing that comes into his mind. He jumps from one idea to the next. He just doesn't think things through."
