my nieces and nephews did not react to foods and the additives in them same way my son did. only difference was the adhd. he is now 38 and on his own. he still notices differences. add and adhd are for life, not just childhood.
the WORST individuals who tried to allegedly teach my son were ignorant as devils about add and adhd, and school
systems actually gave kids
the items that truly did turn my son into something unable to be taught, right before their eyes. the condition is neurological. chemicals do make the reactions occur. glad you believe otherwise. is not proven by only 14 kids
. has to be more than 100 in each of the test groups, including a double blind. 14 doesnt prove or disprove anything.
In fairness, I quoted the research
and you called it 'bs.' The students I had only confirmed what i saw in well done research
Each child IS individual. I was in special education all my life, and didn't even have a student diagnosed with AD/HD until 1985. The mother was horrified that no one in the school
knew much about it ... and we didn't. That improved significantly by the time I retired in 2001, but even then a lot of the people in schools you would think understood it didn't have a clue. I'm sure I went through a lot of the same things you did with my kids.
