My 12 year old grand daughter has been cited as having ADD. She lives on the SE coast, while I am in
SF Bay area. I have been advised that she has had a bout (bouts?) with Tourette's Syndrome (swearing
on school bus), instances of "obsessive/compulsive" behavior - would not sit on chair previously
occupied by younger (six) brother as "it was dirty." Also, an instance of rigid/fetal behavior, and "froze"
after being told to get ready, and brush her hair. The little one was held back a grade at one time, and
presently, these past and recent concerns have her on Prozac. I am advised that an MRI was taken - no
tumors, and that now consideration is being made to have her go through a SPECT scan at the Amen
Clinic in Fairfield, CA. At the same time I was advised that she may have an "oppositional disorder"
and that if she does have a temporal disfunction (?) then Prozac is contra-indicated. My grand daughter
would fly - alone, here to go to the Amen Clinic. Under the above description is it safe for her to fly
unaccompanied. Please Note: She is very welcome, as are her parents, but her Mom's thoughts are to
send her alone for a Thanksgiving holiday (response to my invite), and also go to the Amen Clinic.If I can
get appropriate responses, I will gladly call to follow up. I have searched for info on ADD, ODD, and yhe
Amen Clinic. Thank you in advance. Fred Warren
