I agree with this, for a large part, in terms of over-diagnosis and overmedicating in school situations. I am not at all opposed to meds and certainly they are a godsend for those who need them and when they work. But I am opposed to the fact that every IEP meeting I was ever in for the very brief time I taught elem. school, the sped teacher and/or the school psychologist suggested the parent talk to their pediatrician about meds. Often parents were shocked, distressed or vehemently opposed and I can't say that I blamed them!
