But wait. There’s More!….

So, quickly, what time of the year was everyone born?

The Globe articles doesn’t discount ADD, but are suggesting that it is possible some diagnosis is made to early. Which may be as bad as diagnosing to late, I suppose. As I scanned through the articles and comments, there was no “ADD doesn’t exist” conclusions, but I can see how the Anti-ADD crowd will twist this argument to suit their evil purposes. I think we expect too much of kids at that age because we expect them to behave like adults at 5!

Repeat after me: “Hey, teacher, leave those kids alone….All in all your just another brick in the wall.””

It sounds similar the Christian-Scientist article, but with less rhetoric.
