Dr. Baughman- Thank you for your wonderful and fabulously

My 7 year old daughter's first grade teacher is suggesting that our daughter has attention deficit disorder. Julianna is a happy, well-adjusted, naturally exuberrant little girl. She is creatively gifted, compassionate and sensitive. She has never been a problem in our home and she has progressed extremely well academically to this point. She reads, she is capable mathmatically and she is artistically and musically talented. We will not allow these wonderful qualtities to be drugged out of her. While my husband and I now fear for her emotional well-being, her self-confidence and her ability to thrive in her first grade classroom, the resources that you have provided will enable us to be effective advocates for our little girl. Since this issue arose, at Julianna's bedtime, I tell my daughter 'You are a music maker. You are a dreamer of the dreams'. And she will remain so. Thank you, once again. Karen L

Thank you Karen. What loving, protective parents you are. How fortunate
your daughter is. She will grow up with all of here wondrous, limitless,
human potential intact, because of you--not a psychiatric patient/victim.
