Children are Being Drugged Into Submission

Dr Sami Timimi, a consultant child and adolescent psychiatrist based in Lincolnshire, UK, said: "The idea that there is such a thing as a test for ADHD is nonsense. There is no such thing."

Jill Harris, a child psychologist at Birmingham's Children's Hospital in the UK, said: "There is evidence that if you change the learning environment then children will do better. But we are talking about a perfect world and not the over-stretched education system we have. So what we do is medicate."
