Last night went well. I had a great one. I did well with my little
speech. Then I had lots of parents at my table picking up things.

Dear Donna,
question that I have been wondering about.
Why does it seem that there are so many more disabled kids than there used to be? ADHD< AUTISM<ETC>
Do you have any theories?

That I've had the count. That I've known so many are professionals.

I am a little concerned the news didn't get to parents.

I should have figured out a way to get it to them. Ugh.
I thought I was.

I wonder about that too Bizi. Were they always there and unacknowledged or are we eating chemicals or something that makes it more prevalent? Maybe it's similar to bipolar disorder. You never heard of it fifty years ago but you were aware of the occasional suicide, generally attributed to someone who was 'weak'.

Hi,

I found something on usa today:

http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/news/...ity/47467520/1

Quote:
The study suggests that three or four children in a typical elementary school classroom have development disabilities. Some of the increase may be the result of the rise in premature birth, which leaves some babies with lasting impairments, says study author Sheree Boulet of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. One in eight babies today are born prematurely, according to the March of Dimes


Quote:
And some, such as Philip Landrigan of the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, say improvements in screening and diagnosis can't completely explain the increase. Landrigan says research suggests that environmental chemicals, such as pesticides and the phthalates found in many soft plastics and cosmetics, can affect children's development.
I wonder if in the past we were more willing to put up with differences and some oddness.

Honestly there are lots of reason's

One is that people are starting to recognize it more.

Another is that people are realizing that its okay to ask for help!
Is my opinion. And that as a child if you don't get the help you
need you can't succeed in our world today.

Many children in the past, didn't always get the help they needed.
So they had more problems as adults. I personally feel.

And at times, we still find that we are more ashamed as adults
to admit we have problems.

I know my kids, I'm personally more wanting to find the help
they need. Because I got help. But one of the main reason's
I was helped, was because mine was medical.

But I also always felt worthless, because kids teased me
all the time. Because I was different.

So now I don't want any kid to go through that. And lots
of parents don't either.

And ADHD, is technically overdiagnosed at times. And in
my opinion sometimes Autism can go either way. It can
be truely diagnosed or it can be because they aren't sure its
behavioral so they say autism. It really sometimes bugs
me that they tag so many kids with Autism.

so they are over diagnosing and over medicating them then.
I don't like that at all.

Donna,

That stinks to go through that as a kid. You are doing fantastic work.

Sometimes they do.

I am just not sure.



I even hate to admit. I"m slightly in a predictument.

I may be going to put myself in this category.

I am slightly afraid, my grandson. Could easily be autistic.

I am not positive, but I know something is going on.
Along with the speech. And I've got to keep getting to
the bottom of it.

So I'm going to research somemore. And continue to fight
to figure it out. But we wont just lable to be labeling.

Hope it makes sense.
