To hold ADHD Awareness events, film evening and talks on scientific research and findings by eminent and world renowned Neurologists, Psychiatrists, Paediatricians, Doctors and Sociologists that will reveal a deeper understanding and insight into the systems, causes, history, treatment, the misdiagnosis of ADHD and more than often, the permanent harm caused to innocent and defenceless children.

Welcomes ADHD Awareness Campaign, educates parents and the community as to the misdiagnosis of ADHD and alternative solutions, remedies and medications to that of using SSRI amphetamine drugs. At present, Australia has one quarter of a million Children each prescribed SSRI Medication stronger than Cocaine or Speed resulting in brain damage an low IQ's.

ADHD symptoms may be bought about by the side affects of or resulting from;

 * Food containing any of fifty preservatives, colours, emulsifiers and other dangerous chemicals found in their food. (See MyFamilyHealth.)
 * Saturation of fast-foods leading to a state of malnutrition.

  * Lack of sunshine and exercise.
· * Being isolated from a loving parent or parents.
  * Traumatic circumstances in their lives.
  * Reaction to the side effects of toxics within vaccines.

SSRI medications are psychotropic amphetamine drugs known to create brain damage to children. These drugs are banned in the U.K. to children under 16 years. In the USA they must carry a Suicide Warning. Yet in Australia they are administered to children like candy.

 Official Criteria to Diagnose ADHD in Children
 From Australian Psychological Society  website.

Diagnosis

The formal diagnosis of ADHD is complex. There are two main criteria, or symptom groups, that are currently used to make a diagnosis - attentional symptoms and hyperactivity symptoms.
Most ADHD children display characteristics of both hyperactivity and inattention. In the first instance, many cases of ADHD come to the attention of parents/caregivers, teachers and psychologists when children are excessively active, impulsive, inattentive and act in a non-compliant, defiant way.

Key symptoms

Each symptom (inattention and hyperactivity) must persist for six months or more and be exhibited across various settings.
The key features associated with symptoms of inattention include:

* Failing to give close attention to details and difficulty sustaining attention in tasks or play;
* Not listening when spoken to;
* Not following through on instructions and failure to finish tasks;
* Difficulty organising tasks and activities;
* Avoiding, disliking or being reluctant to engage in tasks that require sustained mental effort;
* Losing things necessary for tasks or activities; and
* Being easily distracted.

The key features associated with symptoms of hyperactivity (sometimes known as hyperactivity-impulsivity) include:

* Fidgeting with hands or feet and squirming while seated;
* Getting up when remaining seated is expected;
* Running about or climbing excessively;
* Difficulty playing or engaging in leisure activities and always ‘on the go’;
* Talking excessively and blurting out answers before a question is completed; and Interrupting others.



While ADHD is recognised as a disorder that is distinct from some of the other childhood disorders, it frequently overlaps with other conditions such as Conduct Disorder. This can make diagnosis difficult. Further, many ADHD symptoms are not unique to the disorder. This means that symptoms of ADHD can be non-specific indicators of other childhood disorders, including behavioural difficulties or learning disorders.

Assessment or diagnosis of ADHD is often undertaken in the first instance by a medical professional such as a paediatrician or child psychiatrist. It is also common for child clinical psychologists, clinical neuropsychologists and educational and developmental psychologists to be involved in the diagnosis of ADHD. Clinical neuropsychologists are more likely to be involved where brain or cognitive deficits are implicated. Educational and developmental psychologists are involved when there are educational and learning difficulties and behavioural problems at school, and clinical psychologists where behavioural or emotional disturbances are the obvious outcomes of the disorder and should be included in the treatment/intervention.

Psychologists involved in the treatment and management of the disorder focus primarily on how the disorder affects behaviour and learning and what can be done to improve them. They assess the impact on the family and assist the parents/caregivers to manage the child.

Assessment of the child’s behaviour at home and in school must also be undertaken.
These are the places where treatment will take place and where behavioural improvements will be noticed. Accurate diagnosis is essential for successful treatment/intervention. END.

No Child must ever be administered amphetamine medication

We have inserted some logical explanations for Children labeled as non-compliant and unfocused behaviours.

Australia's Official Criteria for ADHD Diagnosis and Drugging Children.

* the child is restless, overactive, fidgety
After consuming bread or foods containing toxic chemicals such as 282 or MSG there is only one outcome. Read more.

* the child is constantly chattering
Intelligent children are so excited to share ideas, inspirations and dreams.

* the child is continuously interrupting people
Children learn manners and behaviour from parents, television, schools or day care.

* the child cannot concentrate for long on specific tasks
Children that have ample sleep, exercise and love with little television, concentrate perfectly.

* the child is inattentive
Children are unable to pay attention if they are upset, traumatised or disturbed by life circumstances, they become preoccupied by such.  Children that are sleep deprived are inattentive.

* the child finds it hard to wait his/her turn in play, conversations or standing in line (queue) 
Again children learn manners and behaviour from parents, television, schools or day care.

The above signs may be observed in children frequently and usually do not mean the child has ADHD. It is when these signs become significantly more pronounced in one child, compared to other children of the same age, and when his/her behavior undermines his/her school and social life, that the child may have been labeled as ADHD. 

Please watch the videos below to learn why your children may be labeled as having a disorder and how to avoid your child from being seduced into a life of dysfunction.
