I am a college student  at O S  U . I am working on a persuasive
speech on the over diagnosis of ADHD. Through my research on many
sites on the web I have come across your name and your studies and
views really interest me. I have a real problem with the fact that
it has become easier for doctors to tell a family that their child
has a disorder

[Fred A. Baughman Jr., MD:
by which
they mean disease/abnormality of the child]

and treat it with medicine rather than to let the family know that
added time and love and support of the childs family could help the
problem.   Thank you for your time-

Sincerely Kelly

Kelly, thanks for writing and having your eyes wide open. Psychiatry’s
claims ADHD is a disease is a total fraud. These are normal children, who,
if troubled and troublesome need more from the adults responsible for
them–their parents, teachers. The label, the exoneration that comes with
the label, and quick fix (Ritalin), are highly seductive. Good luck, FB .
