  Kids hospitalised for illiteracy: report

  December 6, 2004 - 5:19AM

  A federal government inquiry has found that children's clinics in
  hospitals across the country are being swamped with patients whose
  only problem is their inability to read.

  The head of the government's inquiry into reading, Ken Rowe, said
  hospital psychology clinics were straining to cope with children
  seeking medical attention for problems caused by their failure to
  learn at school. 

[Fred A. Baughman Jr., MD:
so much for the success of medicalizing "specific reading disability"/ "dyslexia." There is no doubt they know "whole language" "whole word" used in the public schools to prevent literacy, is intentionally creating "dyslexia" with all of the psychiatric "co-morbidity" sure to follow. ]

  "Hospitals are complaining that their clinics are being filled with
  kids who are being referred for things like (ADHD)," he told the
  Sydney Morning Herald.

  "But once the paediatricians sort out the children's literacy problems
  the behaviour problems disappear." 

[Fred A. Baughman Jr., MD:
of course, but then their would be no dyslexia progressing to adhd, cd, odd, ocd, drug. Here in the US when it progresses to out of control adhd, cd, odd they are sent to juvenile hall, reformatories, and do not get out without psych dx. and treatment. ]

  What was essentially an education issue had become a health issue,
  he said.

As intended by the psych-pharm blueprint]
