: Does anyone have any advice for dealing with a school system. They are not being very helpful with the resources that my child needs. They want me to medicate him and I consider that a last resort. He is not a behavioral problem just cannot stay focused. I am activly looking into other solutions to help him but they are treating me like I am dening him something he needs. I would not consider myself a good parent if I did not look at all of my options. He is not a typical ADD child which leads me to believe that maybe there is another alternative. They are shutting me out because I am persuing other options. He was diagnosed 3 months ago and they say they have tried everything to help but its not working. Three months is not very long and they have definatly not tried everthing not even scratched the surface.
: Thanks for any support!
STAND BY YOUR GUNS!!!!!!
As to how to handle the School System, be aware that they are trying to force you to put your child on a HIGHLY addictative, Class II narcotic with almost identical effects (and side effects) as Cocaine. The DEA has declared it the "most widely abused drug on the school grounds."
My advice is - you don't need a doctor, you need a Lawyer. There is a web page that you need to read. It was written by Fred A. Baughman Jr.,MD and is called "Immunize your child against attention deficit disorder". You can find it by searching on the author's name. In it he also references an article that says it is a violation of the Constitution to force medication to regulate a child's behavior.
Remember, addiction begins with ADD!
