In Reply to: Fixation Devices posted by Drummond on September 03, 2000 at 10:22:49:

Thank you so much for your advice. I truly hope that you have the answer. I guess I'll just have to wait and see. If someone tries to steal your ideas you alway have proof , via your postings on this message board that it was your idea. Have you thought about having someone create you a webpage? If you do this..please, please come here and let us desperate moms and dads know it's URL. Bless you for caring

: My daughter preempted me by posting the abstract. Yes, television is a fixation device, cartoons are particularly harmful to an immature brain. Any device which captures and holds attention through one modality is a fixation device (mobiles suspended over cribs, ticking clocks) and should, in my opinion, be removed from the environment of a susceptible child. Indeed I would go so far as to say such devices should be withheld from the environment of any child until the age of ten or, better yet, post-puberty.
: I have tentatively suggested a couple of method to halt the maldevelopment of the brain, an obvious method is to stop any attempt at self-stimulation (stimming). I have also suggested a very contraversial method whereby a child may emerge from the disorder, this method would require consultation with a child psychiatrist. I'm not at liberty to disclose them, doing so might cause me to be struck off a couple of associations I belong to. I'm still posting the article by snail mail to parents who have requested it and that in itself is a risk.

: Is there a way for me to remove the abstract from the message board before copies of it are all over the net? Is it too late? Perhaps even irrelevant?

: Greg and Grandma Peg, please accept my apologies on behalf of Chastity. She is an exceptionally nice young lady as a rule.
