Headin', Ritin’, and Ritalin (Part II)
It has been called by many as "Teacher's Little Helper." I'm referring to the popular drug Ritalin which is widely prescribed to "treat" the condition ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), commonly referred to as simply "hyperactivity."
The number of children given this drug has risen by hundreds of percent in the last ten years or so, much to the delight of the shareholders of
Ciba-Geigy, the drug's
manufacturer. The U.S. and Canada are leading the parade in Ritalin use, while European countries are far down the list. Maybe children across the ocean are different? Could it be marketing? Please read on.
It seems as if every child today is being labelled with ADHD. It seems to be a catch-all name given to kids who don't fit into someone's definition of how a child "should" behave. The criteria used to make this diagnosis fits almost every child
encountered in practice. According to Dr. Peter Breggin in his book The War on Children, ADHD tends to be a middle-class diagnosis. So let's look at the factors that would label a child as having ADHD:
1. Often fidgets and squirms in his/her seat.
2. Has difficulty remaining seated when required.
3. Is easily distracted.
4. Often blurts out answers to questions before they have been completed.
5. Has difficulty awaiting his/her turn during games.
6. Has difficulty following instructions.
7. jumps from one thing to another.
8. Often talks excessively.
9. Interrupts others.
10. Often loses things.
11. Does not seem to listen.
12. Has difficulty playing quietly.
If your child displays at least 8 of these criteria, he or she is a candidate for the ADHD diagnosis. (All of a sudden I'm very concerned about myself and most of my friends and colleagues!). These criteria sound like a normal, healthy, exuberant, bored, child. Many authorities feel that these children are actually quite gifted and are very right-brained, i.e., creative. These children function with two speeds; hyperdrive and collapse. There is no in-between. They are also highly visual and non-sequential processors. In other words, they learn by pictures in a non-traditional manner.
These children, many feel, are "scanners"; they scan life

With more than two weeks down and less than one to go, no one has filed an application for appointment to Comal ISD's vacant District 1 board of trustees seat.
CISD communications director Julie Jerome said Monday state law gives the district 180 days to fill the position, which was vacated by Carolyn Miller on Marcn 30. Board members want to appoint someone to complete the remainder of Miller's term, which expires in May 2012.
"The intent was to interview candidates before the June 28 board meeting," Jerome said. "If we don't have any filings, the board will discuss a course of action.
"We really have until September before the 180-day deadline. We were just trying to be ahead of the curve on this."
Applications are being accepted at the CISD Support Services building, 1404 1-35 North in New Braunfels, through 5 p.m.
Monday. Applicants must live witnin the boundaries of District 1, have been a resident of Texas for at least one year, a resident of the schixil district for at least six months, be a U.S. citizen, a registered voter, and at least 18 years old.
Applicants must also include a letter of interest and resume. A one-page application, available at Comal ISD offices or by downloading from the district's website at www.comalisd.org, or at www.sos.state.tx.us, also must be filled out and notarized.
All documents must be submitted to Jeanie Mendez in the superintendent's office. Interviews will be conducted by school board trustees during their June 28 regular meeting. The board will make the appointment that night, and the new board member's first official meeting will be in July.
Contact Mendez in the superintendent's office at (830) 221-2064 or e-mail [email protected]
Perry: Still time to decide on 2012
Texas Gov. Rick Perry says he has some time to think about whether he should run for president.
The three-term Republican governor told Fox News in an interview Tuesday that he needs to go through "a thought process" before deciding whether to seek the GOP nomination.
Perry is the longest serving governor in Texas history and has fanned speculation he'll join the 2012 GOP race.
Perry's closest advisers say he has no intention of running, though last month Perry said ne was "going to think about it."
Perry would bring conservative bona fiaes, a proven fundraising record and a fresh voice to a field in which many conservatives are looking for an alternative to front-runner Mitt Rom-ney.
The former Massachusetts governor is making his second bid for the GOP nomination.

and the world around them in the same manner as they scan a computer screen. Some authorities also feel that they are a product of our fast-paced, overstimulated culture. To make my point clearer, allow me to ask you the question, "what if Einstein and Edison were on Ritalin?" If they were born today, they would surely have been labelled ADHD; both had been expelled from school for disruptive behavior. In two weeks, I will continue this article with Part III.
