"Does Your child Have ADHD? This section contains the diagnostic criteria that establish the presence of the autism spectrum disorders, and also ADHD. These criteria have primarily been extrapolated from the standard diagnostic reference guide that is employed by the medical profession to determine the presence of all psychological, psychiatric, and neuropsy-chiatric disorders, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition, which is commonly referred to as DSM-IV. These standard criteria are generally good indicators that problems do exist."

"In the next chapter, I'm going to show you how I uncovered the clues about autism that helped Kyle to recover, and that may help your child on his or her road to recovery. We'll do it systematically, step by step, the same way I did back then, with the help of brave and great kids like the amazing Kyle Olson. Here are some of Kyle's clues that you may have noticed. KYLE'S CLUES • Kyle's family had a history of autoimmune disorders (scleroderma and rheumatoid arthritis), allergies, and neurological disease (Parkinson's)."

"A child can play all day long at a playstand, relying entirely on her imagination. Three Sisters also sells accessories to go in or around the playstands: silk rainbow blankets and scapes. You can also find cherrywood rattles, amber teething necklaces, wooden picture books, and mobiles. Wyatt still has the Nils Holgersson book and mobile hanging in his bedroom. We found most of Wyatt's other favorite toys at North Star Toys (www.northstartoys.com). North Star is a fantastic family-run business that makes all their toys by hand. Everything is wooden, nontoxic, and beautiful."

"Still, if you do decide to give your child dairy products, I strongly recommend that you go organic. Let's take a closer look at some of the potentially dangerous substances that might be present in nonorganic cow's milk: • Growth hormones. Many dairies treat cows with manufactured hormones such as recombinant bovine somatotropin (rBST). "

"It seems clear to me that to begin this change, we need only to apply some simple, harmless interventions, like telling parents to try a week or two with no sugar in their child's diet—or better still, a week or two without dairy and sugar. These are things that might be viewed by some parents as extreme measures, but my response is always, "You think that is extreme but you don't think that ten or twenty years on Ritalin is?" When I put it this way, many parents are willing to give my ideas a chance."
- Jay Gordon, The ADD and ADHD Cure: The Natural Way to Treat Hyperactivity and Refocus Your Child (Get the book.)

"Over a short time, the blood sugar plummets from its great height, and a child gets the twitchy bottom syndrome and simply can't sit still. They can be sad angry, or sleepy. In adults, we call it the coffee-break syndrome. About an hour after you consume a coffee and a doughnut, the "high" wears off and you "need" more coffee and another doughnut. You're on a merry-go-round that is essentially a sugar-rush-and-crash cycle."

- Jay Gordon, The ADD and ADHD Cure: The Natural Way to Treat Hyperactivity and Refocus Your Child (Get the book.)

"Virtually all experts agree that ADD magnifies all the negative effects from sugar and can seriously undermine a child's educational and social life. What's Really Going On I'm sure that ADD and ADHD are being overdiagnosed these days. The media, medical, and pharmaceutical attention the disorders have drawn has led parents and doctors to jump to the diagnosis of ADD and ADHD almost automatically. Instead we ought to look harder for the nutritional and behavioral issues that might cause the symptoms of ADD and ADHD."

- Jay Gordon, The ADD and ADHD Cure: The Natural Way to Treat Hyperactivity and Refocus Your Child (Get the book.)

"You can ask the following questions to help your child reach this conclusion: • How do you feel when you are trying to do something that is hard? • Do you ever feel like giving up even before you try? • Can you remember a time when you tried to do something that was hard, and actually did it? • How did you feel before you did it? • How did you feel after? • Did you know that everyone has trouble doing things correctly when they are stressed? • Did you know that everything is easier to do if you just remember to stay positive?"

"Toys powered by a child's imagination are often more educational and allow for more imaginative play than battery-powered toys. Battery-free toys also reduce the demand for the toxic components used in battery production and the burden put on the waste stream when they have run out. Buy toys that have been made in the U.S.A. Buying domestically manufactured toys has several benefits: it supports jobs and local economies, and it also reduces the fossil fuels needed to ship items. Environmental standards are also often higher here than in countries such as China."

"Do you remember the child on the steps of the Uffizi? Ten years old at the most and the unhappiest of bunnies. How did she get like that? Perhaps she's spent ten years feeding on burgers, pizza and ice cream, washed down with sugary cola. Maybe she spends long hours in a virtual world of her own, absorbing the messages of the marketing men, playing computer games rather than real ones, staring at TV programmes rather than going out to play in the sunshine. Does she lie awake till the early hours, watching unsuitable TV and texting her chums?"

"On the other hand, no one knows your child, or cares about his or her welfare, as much as you. If, on serious reflection, you believe the school is wrong, you must act. • On such occasions, don't rush in to complain in an angry or upset state of mind. Try to keep calm and use the correct channels to put across your point of view. • Make sure you are completely aware of school rules and discipline procedures and who to contact in particular circumstances (this is where that folder with the prospectus, etc comes into its own)."

"And while 'non-educational' websites, DVDs and lapware computer games can be fun, and can stimulate interaction between parent and child, they should be an occasional addition to the age-old human repertoire of cuddling, playing, singing, storytelling, and just 'hanging out' with a baby or toddler. In the first few years, genuine interactive first-hand experiences are much more important than technological toys."

"Duane was simply a bright, energetic child who clashed with the standards of his school, for which he was rewarded with the school's opinion that he suffered from an un-proven neurological disease. Both I and my wife, Annette, a devoted and no-nonsense mother who would have none of the label the school wanted to affix to her son, knew there was nothing wrong with Duane. A wonderful 2nd grade teacher volunteered to take Duane in her class the following year and was able to keep his energies directed appropriately and teach him."

"For fifteen years at the end of the last century, child language expert Dr Sally Ward investigated babies' listening skills in Manchester, England. In 1984, 20 per cent of the nine-month-old infants she tested were unable to listen selectively; by 1999, the proportion had almost doubled. I met her in 1997, when she predicted that 'by the early years of the new millennium, around half the nation's one-year-olds will be unable to listen satisfactorily to the sound of their mothers' voices against the noise of the television'."

"Needing only a minimum of three criteria, a child could be diagnosed for Conduct Disorder without doing anything too horrible. If one is not quite up to the standards of Conduct Disorder, there is always Oppositional Defiant Disorder, which is ideal for teenagers who resist adult authority and do not want to conform to prevailing norms. In fact, as you look through that one, think back on if you could have been labeled that when younger."

"Such a result is usually pointed to as proof that the child in question really has ADHD, but the truth is that Ritalin and the other ADHD drugs are intended to do nothing more than control unwanted (though normal) behaviors. Dr."

"If, for example, you are a woman who has diabetes and you have a child who weighed more than 9 pounds at birth, your child is at significant risk of developing metabolic syndrome in childhood and diabetes later in life. Research also shows that infants with lower birth weights whose mothers were obese but not diabetic at the time they gave birth are also at increased risk of developing metabolic syndrome."

"Once again it seems clear that any child who is a disturbance to adults can be labeled as mentally ill, with no consideration that part of what might be happening is a rebellion against people foolish enough to use demeaning labels so recklessly. Diagnostic criteria for Conduct Disorder A."

"You're a smart parent for keeping your child drugged False flattery is a very powerful mind hack. A similar phenomenon takes place when parents are told to dose their children with Ritalin because their children have been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). ADHD is a fictitious disease. It has no verifiable physiological symptoms whatsoever. It has been invented by psychiatrists and drug companies to market drugs to children; drugs that are as powerful (and potentially as dangerous) as narcotics."
- Mike Adams, Spam Filters for Your Brain (Get the book.)

"A hunter-gatherer mother who is shifting camp can carry only one child, along with her few possessions. She cannot afford to bear her next child until the previous toddler can walk fast enough to keep up with the tribe and not hold it back. In practice, nomadic hunter-gatherers space their children about four years apart by means of lactational amenorrhea, sexual abstinence, infanticide, and abortion. By contrast, sedentary people, unconstrained by problems of carrying young children on treks, can bear and raise as many children as they can feed."

"However, even though I believe that the symptomatology described by these criteria can be meaningful in making a diagnosis, I do not place primary value in the various diagnostic labels. You have probably noticed that I used these diagnostic labels very sparingly in the book. In my opinion, the various diagnostic categories are adequate descriptors of behaviors, but they reflect very little about the root causes of these behaviors."

"They are all wonderful kids, but I wanted a child of my own. A sixth child at the age of forty, with five kids and a full-time job? Why not? Like most overachieving women my age, I was sure I would become pregnant easily, but this was not to be. Years of hard work and lack of sleep had taken a toll on my egg supply. After the emotional roller-coaster ride of infertility treatments, my husband and I opted to adopt a sixth child, a godsend that satisfied my every maternal urge. At the age of forty-two I had it all—a wonderful family, an exciting career."

"The commission concluded that the average child one-year-old or younger spends seventy minutes a day sucking on plastic; forty-eight minutes for children between one and two; and thirty-seven minutes for children between two and three. This was not enough time spent sucking, the commission concluded, to deliver a "designated health risk" to children under the age of five.28 "The dose makes the poison," CPSC spokesman Scott Wolfson explained to me. "There were not enough phthalates released in those toys to pose any danger."

"They infect their child with a subtle, subliminal sense of impending doom. Such a pessimistic view of the world sometimes seems to run in families. Parents raise children to see the world as they do. The vulnerable child has been the subject of considerable academic interest in pediatrics for the past decade. This child grows up to be the vulnerable adult, for whom being out of sorts carries the weight of a self-fulfilling prophecy. Shaking off that sense of impending catastrophe is challenging, and the inability to do so has been labelled "catastrophizing."

"Among them: the notions that a child on a plant-based diet won't attain full growth or have enough energy, that he or she won't consume enough calcium, protein, and iron, that controlling obesity and cholesterol can wait until the child is older. Not one of these premises is true. A longtime pediatrician with an extremely busy practice, Dr. Attwood felt an obligation to eliminate the barriers that prevent children from exposure to healthy low-fat eating."
- Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., M.D., Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease (Get the book.)

"It is so seductive for a parent who might feel guilty about not spending enough time with their child, and they might feel guilty for the fact that their child has been diagnosed with ADHD, and thus a psychiatrist or schoolteacher or an administrator says, "You are a good parent by dosing your child with this narcotic drug." They think, "Great, I can be a good parent, I can do the thing that's socially acceptable and it's not going to take me any time."
