My three main purposes in writing this book are:
1.) To find all the conventional knowledge about mental challenges as I could and centralize it here.
2.) It is evident when a child is born with down syndrome or his or her performance seems slower than normal but everything else is someone’s opinion as with autism spectrum disorders and learning disabilities. People who diagnose these so-called disorders have no specific test that can with certainty say they have this disorder therefore need this drug.
That’s why you can’t take it on face when some medical or mental health professional sits with your child for 40 minutes then tells you that he or she needs to go on ritalin or some other drug for the next x number of years.
No matter how you cut it, it’s a profit-driven industry. The school gets extra money for every kid diagnosed as LD or special ed. The mental health people make money diagnosing and counselling these kids plus writing drug prescriptions.
